My first contact with Virtual Reality (VR) photography was winning the software from Apple at a presentation in 1994 or 95. It filled 8 CDs, came with three massive binders and required advanced programming skills. It got a lot easier to do over the years while it got easier to share bigger images on the internet, but oddly it now it isn't as common.
Most of my work has been in creating panoramic images of places. There is also a way to photograph objects so they can be rotated in space to see all sides. Because of the time it takes to make twelve images it limits you to scenes without people, but now there are lens systems that allow the creation of panoramic images in one shot, but there are tradeoffs with those as well. I have one and will be working with it more in the future. They can also be used with video cameras to produce panoramic videos.
