Learn by Doing Photography #34 – Panoramic

I took a drive to the grandparents house yesterday so the kids could spend the weekend. We actually have a pretty great thing going, for the past 5 years twice a summer our kids  spend four days with a their grandparents. But they don’t go to the same grandparents – one goes to one set of grandparents and the other stays with the other set of grandparents, at the end of the summer they flip. This way they each get to spend solo time with their grandparents and my husband and I have four days for just us. It’s a win win everyone looks forward to the weekend!

On my way home to Missoula the clouds were amazing! Montana is called Big Sky Country and it’s on days like this that you really notice it. From East to West the clouds changed as I drove onward, storms rolled over me and continued on, the sun came out and the sun disappeared. I stopped at Nine Pipes to capture a few of the clouds that were rolling on by.

Panoramic Photography Tutorial

A couple things I have learned along the way:

-I Use a tripod
-Set the timer on your camera or use a cable release
-Shoot vertical (I have noticed when I shoot horizontal I don’t have enough photo to work with after the software does its thing.
-If shooting with a wide angle I bring it in a little so I don’t get the vignette thing going on
-Use a small aperture to I get everything in focus
