How to make 360° ( VR ) Videos and Photos

360 Video and Photo are the latest trend in social media. Here is how you get started creating your own. I HAVE BEEN CREATING 360° PHOTOGRAPHS for years using an app called ‘360 Panorama’. I would upload the photospheres to their server and create tiny planets for my Instagram feed. But everything has changed. 360° Video is now mainstream on Facebook and Youtube and 360° Photos can be contributed to Google Street View. Facebook and Google are highly invested in creating the platform and the technology for VR / 360° media… and they are just getting started. You’ve probably seen 360° videos turning up in your Facebook feed already – they’re rad! These videos are different from regular videos in one very important way – you choose where to look in a 360° environment. The video allows viewers to look up, down and all around. The same is true for 360° Videos on Youtube.  I’ve been creating 360° Videos for a few months now and I thought it was time to explain how you can get started creating interactive, VR headset ready, 360° video and photos now. RICOH THETA S Unless you want to spend $4,000 on a 6 GoPro 360° Video rig (and if you want to create 360° professionally then you should consider it) the best option at this time is to get started with the Ricoh Theta S camera. The Theta S is tiny (about the size of a candy bar), easy to use (with a free app for capturing media and several editing apps as well) and affordable – they are about $350 on Amazon. The Ricoh...

Underwater in the Bahamas

THE BAHAMAS, it should go without saying, are surrounded by water. And as a guest of the Caribbean island(s) nation I was surrounded by water too. Thank god. Because this water is awesome – sometimes placid and clear, sometimes tempestuous and rough – the water had a personality all its own. Using my Gopro I tried to captured all of the various temperaments of the water that The Bahamas enjoys. I had a great time fishing, snorkeling, beach combing and exploring with my fellow adventurers Lee Abbamonte, Matt Kepnes, Mike Richard and Matt Long. This ‘Guys Trip’ to the ‘Bro-hamas’ was made possible by Bahamas...

[VID] Flowrider in Clearwater, Florida – hang ten and eat shit!

WATCH THIS! Oh man, I suck at surfing…but when I found myself at the Flowrider in Clearwater, FL I simply couldn’t help myself! Hundreds of gallons of water are pumped up a soft incline that creates the perfect conditions for indoor surfing…or indoor falling on your face.Link text When you are tired of the beach (if that is possible) cross the street to Surf-Style and step into the muggy glass chamber known as the Flowrider… Watch more Clearwater videos at tripfilms.com The Diamond PR crew of travel ninjas and I got soaked and had a helluva time spinning, flailing, splashing and crashing on the Flowrider – just steps from our rooms at the Sandpearl Resort. If you need more Flowrider mayhem I highly suggest you check out Ryan Gargiulo’s sweet vid (you can spot him here in mine). If you need more GoPro in your life check out my GP playlist on...
