Shooting panoramas is a rewarding undertaking. Use a tripod, meter to avoid blowing out the highlights, set your shutter and aperture, and plan the composition you want for the vista.
Carefully shoot, making sure to overlap images by at least 20% from the previous shot. Be careful to follow a horizon line to avoid distortion later in the process.
Next comes the processing, which relies on a well shot set of images, from as few as two, up to 10 or more. Stitch the images using Photoshop or other stitching software and you’re mostly done.
Recently I learned a new technique that lends itself well to some panoramas, take a look and see for yourself, it’s a different spin on things, that’s for sure.
