Well, talented Aussie aerial photographer Andrew Griffiths, via his business “Lensaloft” is doing his best to give you a good idea of what it’s like “up there” via his award-winning panoramic images shot from a selection of platforms including blimps, helicopters, octocopters and more.
Below, I’ve taken a few screen shots to give you a preview of the sunset panorama Andrew completed recently, over my beautiful home city of Brisbane.
A few viewing tips
- It’s a no-brainer, but clicking the “full-screen” icon at the centre bottom of the screen after the panorama loads, is highly suggested if you want to really immerse yourself in the 360° goodness.
- To move around the 360 environment, click anywhere on the image and drag in the direction you want to go.
- To access each of the three different hover points across Brisbane, click on the tab at the top centre of screen.
- Wish you knew what direction you were looking on a map? No problem. Look for the map pullout tab at the centre of the screen on the left.
- And finally, access a couple of cool different aspects by right clicking anywhere in the panorama and selecting the “Fisheye” or “Little Planet” modes.
