How to Shoot and Stitch a Panorama Photo

Sometimes a landscape vista is just too large for one frame or lens to capture. Sometimes you want to capture the scene with more megapixels. When you find yourself in these situations you need to learn how to shoot and stitch a panorama photo.  Literally named because you are “panning” through the vista.

So what exactly is a panorama photo, or panoramic photo?  Some call it a wide format photo, some call it a photo with a wide field of view.  Either way, it usually shows a HUGE area, and it needs to be stitched together with software.  Can you imagine printing a pano from film?

Panoramic photography is a technique of photography, using specialized equipment or software, that captures images with elongated fields of view. It is sometimes known as wide format photography. The term has also been applied to a photograph that is cropped to a relatively wide aspect ratio. While there is no formal division between “wide-angle” and “panoramic” photography, “wide-angle” normally refers to a type of lens, but using this lens type does not necessarily make an image a panorama.
