Zeppelin inside in 360°
This time I will give you an inside view of a zeppelin... attention... I am not talking about the cabine where the people are while travelling. I have shown the cabine in a previous post: Inside the cabine of a Zeppelin
This time You will be able to look around inside the big body which is usually filled with gas (helium), in a way that you couldn't survive there for many seconds... but only when it is in the hangar during winter to get a complete refreshment. Further it is strictly forbidden for non-stuff to enter... because a zeppelin body is very sensitive inside...and very very expensive.
This was, among with insurance requirements the reason why I had to enter the body with a stuff-person together, even if this made the shooting much more difficult.
Zeppelin Hangar Friedrichshafen (Germany)
Why is it difficult to produce a 360°panorama inside the body of a zeppelin?
Do you know these "bouncy castles" (german: Hüpfburgen) for children?
Try to imagine to put your tripod stable on the ground in one of these... and you have a clue about the difficulties for a panoramic photographer inside of a zeppelin. Remember that in order to be able to stitch the 4 fisheye-shots together in post production, they should be turned in steps of exact 90° and they have to be shot from the same angle from the ground. In addition, if you are in 2 persons inside, each step of each person moves everything. I had to take more shots and instruct my accompanying person to change position to be able to make that second person disappear in post production digitally... but also my own movement around the tripod, staying behind the camera always was impossible without moving the complete surrounding.
This time I do not only provide a 360°panorama to you, but a complete so called "virtual tour". This means that you can "jump" from one location to the next using the small white arrows you will find while navigating in the interactive panorama view.
It might be a bit tricky to find your way out of the body (there are 2 spots inside and 3 spots outside. Please do not step on the cables inside ;-) I was told, after the hole was closed behind us to keep the air inside.
There are some more spots to explore. On this picture you can see the entrance to the body, which is kept closed in order to hold the air inside. There is another spot inside the hangar to see both aircrafts side by side from the middle... and ... if you give attention to a white arrow pointing upwards, you can have a look on the complete hangar from a bird's perspective. When being up there, you should have a look on the platform where you are standing... to understand how this shot in about 25 meters hight was taken... I didn't use a drone but... enjoy finding out!
