Panoramic photography is a technique of photography wherein images are captured within a greater field of view than the human eye can take in. An image showing a field of view approximating, or greater than, 180 degrees can already make a scene look totally different from real life. Polar Panorama is a unique variation of the panoramic photography in which the technique used covered the fields of view of up to 360°. With the application of Photoshop effects such as Photoshop filter (Distort> Polar Coordinates), the captured images look like a stereographic projection or literally a little planet.
