One of the areas of Digital Photography that I find challenging and rewarding are creating Panoramic photographs.
It is more of a contemplative thing than producing a single image or HDR since the camera needs to be set up and leveled AFTER figuring out how much your panoramic image will contain. There are a number of pieces of software available to produce panoramas, both for big-person cameras and iPhones, which we’ll discuss next time. For now I just wanted to present you with a couple of them.
This image was captured using a Canon 5D Mark II camera on a tripod and consists of 16+ individual images.
This image was captured on and processed on an iPhone 4s, hand held, using ProCamera and AutoStitch right after I shot it.
It’s amazing what you can do with the smaller cameras today.
Of course, I’m probably not going to make a 60″ long print from one of my iPhone panoramas but that is fine.
A lot of times I will shoot the panorama with my iPhone first, to get a feeling for how & what I’m photographing, then the Canon and the tripod come out and I fine tune the individual components.
