360 Degree Look at Building the Village Roof

August 7, 2014

How do you shoot an aerial 360º photo sphere view of the construction of Atlanta Tech Village's rooftop patio, when you don't have a drone, helicopter or plane ... and you're not Superman?

No problem. Just duck tape a Ricoh Theta 360 degree 1-click camera to a "headache ball" attached to a ginormous crane and use the Ricoh Theta iPhone app to trigger the photos remotely. That's what Villager Dan Smigrod with We Get Around did this summer as we began our rooftop patio construction.Check out this 360º photo showing off the Atlanta Tech Village 'Steel Week' and the beginning construction of our rooftop. Expected completion date? This September.Thanks to Dan for leaping tall buildings in a single bound.
