So before anyone thinks I am expressing any political views on Fstoppers, know this, I AM NOT. I came across this yesterday and at first glance I thought, "well look, a politician lying, SURPRISE SURPRISE," but then upon further examination I have decided for myself that this is just someone who shot a terrible panoramic on their iPhone. Maybe Mitt needs to hire someone with a little more photo knowledge to run his Instagram account.
I have attempted shooting panoramas on my phone before, and while sometimes they look beautiful, other times they look like a photoshop fail! I tend to notice the issue when I don't overlap enough and when there are a lot of straight lines running around the photo (such as power lines). So while I would love to find some photoshop failure from a politician and expose them for the world to see, I would have to say that this particular instance is just a situation of an inexperienced phone photographer, doing their best to document Mitt's event. In my opinion it is a pretty clear cut case of user error combined with a bad judgement call to post it. What do you all think? Check out the diagram below found on Buzzfeed.
