The virtual tour was taken at Giggleswick chapel in October 2014. The virtual tour was taken using HDR photography (High Dynamic Range). This was taken using a Nikon DSLR camera and a Sigma fisheye lense. Each pano (scene) is 12 photographs merged and joined together to make the full spherical image, each joined and merged image is then tweaked in Lightroom to make sure the images are bright and clear. No flash or studio lighting is used as this can dampen colours and cause unwanted dark/light spots when using 360 degree photography. This an example tour used for the marketing Virtual Tours North West, the tours can be taken at any business with a physical location whether it be big or small (a one room apartment or a magnificent church or stately home)
