"Tiny Planet" - Like them or not?

Postby robbalvey » Fri Aug 11, 2017 4:36 pm

I'm really on the fence with these style of photos that come out of our 360 camera. What are you thoughts? Do you like them or not? Please vote in the poll and then tell us why you chose your option!

They're definitely unique but I'd stop short of saying it's awesome. I think if the picture was focused on one specific element (such as a face) and everything is distorted around it, then it could be more useful

I do not like any picture taken with a fish-eye lens or the equivalent thereof. They distort reality so much that I cannot discern anything useful regarding the subject.

Solid "meh" from me. Once in a blue moon you'll land a truly kickass shot but the majority I've seen in this style are messy.

no option for "one or two in each report would be kind of cool". . .

so I chose "I'm indifferent"

Its a neat and unique format, but it's nothing I would write home about.

That's what I'm thinking. Sometimes it's, "WOW!!! THAT'S AWESOME." but the majority of the time its... "meh."

The first and third photos posted??? AWESOME!!! The middle one?? Meh.

Not really a fan. One or two shot in that style are ok, but more gets very repetitive.

I would have preferred if there was a third "They're okay" option in the poll. I think it would be worth taking these photos occasionally (for example, that Wildfire one you posted IMO is fantastic) -- especially if you already have the equipment paid for and use it for other more frequent purposes (i.e. the 360 videos) but I wouldn't put a gigantic focus on them. Like all special effects, it certainly has its place, but should be used relatively sparingly.
