If bigger is better, panoramic photography is the best! Snapping these larger-than-life pictures is a surprisingly easy trick to ace. Read on for our best tips.
When to use panoramic photography:
Go big on your most memorable occasions. From a long-awaited vacation to your best friend’s wedding, special moments deserve equally special photographs. Commemorate that once-in-a-lifetime trip or the happy couple’s blissful romance with a photo that documents every little detail.
How to take panoramic pictures:
Creating those supersized pictures is a cinch with your smartphone. The standard Camera application on the iPhone makes it easy to scan your scenery for a basic panoramic picture. Looking for more impact? Try an app that takes spherical panoramas:
- Microsoft Photosynth (iOS, Windows Phone 7.5 and above): This free app stitches together many photos to create a 360-degree view of your surroundings. Photosynth keeps things simple, beeping just before it snaps each photo to take the guesswork out of the process.
- Sphere (iOS, Android): Record spherical views of your world by hand with this free app. Its super-simple Easy Mode features a viewing circle that acts like a paintbrush, capturing images with digital “brushstrokes” as you pan your environment.
What to do with your panoramic photos:
Whether your panoramic pictures include breathtaking landscapes or emotional champagne toasts, they can be shared without compromise when you create a Premium Lay Flat Photo Book. Display striking panoramic photos across two-page spreads, and enjoy a seamless, uninterrupted view of your top shots thanks to the book’s lay flat binding.
Now that winter is coming to a close and spring is settling in, the changing landscape is providing some great inspiration. What scenic shots have you been snapping this season?
