Panorama photographs (Wide Angle)

Panorama photographs, a favorite among many photographers. And when looking at good Panorama photograph it comes clear way they are so good to look at. I have often been tempted by  taking Panorama images of the location I’m at, they show the viewer a bigger picture. This type of images work beautifully for many subjects

I take many of my wide images in a single shoot, some I also shoot and stitch afterwards in Photoshop. Often shoot the images and stitch them together afterwards in Photoshop.

From wikipedia

While there are no formal division between “wide-angle” and “panoramic” photography, “wide-angle” normally refers to a type of lens, using this lens type does not necessarily make an image a panorama. An image made with an ultra wide-angle fisheye lens covering the normal film frame is not automatically considered to be a panorama. An photograph  showing a field of view approximating, or greater than, that of the human eye  may be termed panoramic.

This generally means the aspect ratio of  image being at least twice as wide as it the height. The resulting images take the form of a wide strip. Some panoramic images have aspect ratios of 4:1 and sometimes 10:1, covering fields of view of up to 360 degrees. Both the aspect ratio and coverage of field are important factors in defining a true panoramic image.

Photo-finishers and manufacturers of Advanced Photo System (APS) cameras use the word “panoramic” to define any print format with a wide aspect ratio. Not necessarily photos that encompass a large field of view.
