To give you some fresh inspiration to start the week off here is a collection of some great panoramic images. Panoramic photography can be a good way to get a fresh perspective and although the images in this set are all landscape images, panoramic images also can make for a very interesting portrait or image of an event. We will highlight some portrait pano shots at a later time and if you have any great panoramic portrait images let us know in the comments below.
If you are interested in Panoramic photography there are a few different ways you can achieve these types of shots. The first way might not be considered a “real” a panoramic shot by some depending on the type of lens you are using but one way to get these images is simply shoot with a wide angle lens and then crop the image into a narrow and long image. You can also stitch together multiple images with Photoshop to create one long image. Or the method that I use is a rotating lens camera. Panoramic cameras can be quite expensive and since I don’t shoot professional landscape portraits to sell but only use this camera for fun I went with a Russian 35mm panoramic camera that does a very good job for the price. Its a Horizon Kompakt Camera and has a 28mm multicoated swing-lens that sweeps across and sees a full 120 degrees of vision. Each shot yields a 58mm long negative – nearly the width of two standard frames! It’s a really fun camera and you can get them for about $300 on amazon here: Horizon Panoramic Camera.
Sit back and enjoy a few awesome panoramic images to give you some fresh inspiration this morning:
