Panoramic Photography and Photoshop

posted by xaio, Aug 28, 2009 12:29 AM — 20 comments

To start off you'll need of course a digital camera. Also a tripod is recommend to keep the camera at the right height and to keep it steady. When you've found a good spot for shooting a panorama set-up your tripod and make sure the camera is set without any flash. A flash will most of the time give you a lesser result then without. When your certain the camera is steady and the shot will be perfect you're ready to begin with the shoot.

At first start at the right side of your panorama in the making. Take a shot and see if the result is as you like. Then zoom in a bit on the left side of the photo to find a landmark. Keep that landmark in mind, because you'll focus on it for the second shot. Repeat these steps shot after shot until you're pleased with the results.

That's all their is to it honestly. The real fun happens afterwards. Of course there are a lot of different software packages available to stitch your photo's together, however I prefer Photoshop. Because there are already a lot of tutorials on the net about Photoshop and the Photomerge tool I won't explain that here. I will give you two terrific links to tutorials however! There you'll find out where the real creation happens.

though I haven't tried it to find out don't you need to keep the same exposure setting fixed for each shot to avoid patches being obvious in the finished result due to exposure diffferences
