When done well, panoramic photography can be stunning. Check out this great video to learn more.
Landscape photographer and YouTuber Thomas Heaton discusses panoramic photography in his latest video. Heaton goes over composition considerations and editing tips in Lightroom. While you can invest money and time purchasing and learning techniques involving specific panoramic gear such as a nodal slide to eliminate parallax effects and ensure perfect image stitching, Heaton prefers a simpler, more mobile approach using his existing landscape photography gear. Especially when starting out with panoramic photography, I recommend this approach as well. Start training your eye to see wide format compositions and just start shooting.
One of the advantages of shooting panoramas is the massive file sizes. While this can strain your computer system, the sheer number of pixels and resulting image clarity can be incredible. This can lead to beautiful large size prints. Technology advances in modern editing software suites means that editing panoramas is straightforward and simple. A click of a button can easily stitch together your images. One great field tip from Heaton is to shoot wider than you think you will need to leave wiggle room in the editing bay for cropping.
