The design Nightshot is a panoramic photo taken at night with very low lighting, 100 meters above the city of Ludwigshafen in Rhineland-Palatinate Germany. Created as an introduction to start a virtual tour of a customer. The photo was not a customer's specification, but Mathias Weil thought it would be beneficial for the VR-tour to start it in the sky with a panorama shot at night. - In the end, the client was very impressed with the image and asked him to do the same for all their other tours. Based on this project, Mathias started a completely new concept for his VR-tours.
