Creating a professional 360 project doesn't require professional photography skills. After following this article, you will be able to create your own professional 360 project and learn the entire process on how everything is set up. In this example we used a Prime Lens 35mm and aperture set to f/5.6. We've made sure that our object is aligned in the center of the turntable in order to avoid the object going outside the boundaries(in this example, aligning is crucial in order to keep your object spinning symmetrical in all 360 frames).
When it comes to symmetrical objects You can use 3 types to place the object equidistant, in the center of the 360 frames.
using classic geometry method with a ruler to measure the center of a circle (view Fig 1)
using the Live view guide lines
using the Crop tool to center your object
