Sometimes, you don't want to be shown in the shot. Here's how to hide yourself from your 360 camera.
To avoid being seen in the shot, you'll need to use a self-timer or remote shutter. First, put the 360 camera in the desired position. Then find a place where you can hide from the camera. Here's the rule of thumb: if you can't see the camera, then generally, the camera can't see you. (Of course, obvious exceptions apply.)
Here's a short video demonstrating this.
The technique applies to both 360 photos and videos. In the shot below, I was about 4 feet away from the camera:
I was standing behind the red pillar and carefully positioned myself to avoid being seen.
If you're shooting a video, you can do without a self-timer or remote shutter by simply trimming the portion of the footage where you are triggering the shutter.
