Panoramas


I've been sorting through some photos looking for a background to possibly use in my next print. I ended up 'wasting' a couple of hours looking back over how I've used my camera and phone to take panoramas over the past few years.

This format is in some ways like a wide angle lens but in others like the top and bottom of the frame have been severely cropped. They can give a strong sense of place and atmosphere and make you look at a view differently. A wide post box with progressions and changes of tone, colour and shape.

I think you have to accept and even deliberately use some of the effects you can get from the panorama setting. You can have multiple images from where someone or something is moving as you pan the camera and the bands of tone where you are shooting into the sun. I often try to deliberately distort the form of something or bend the horizon by tilting the camera during exposure. It's easier to do this with a camera, my phone can cope with a little distortion but often gets stroppy and refuses to play.
