We are all familiar with panorama images, those wide sweeping shots that capture huge swathes of landscape, often in an attempt to show the scale of the scene. We have all made them, I have made hundreds (if not thousands) and like the technique very much. Often I felt that the Canadian landscape cried out for panorama images, in fact I still feel that way.
But today I thought I would post a vertical panorama as a reminder that we can use the technique in more than one way. The adjacent shot comprises nine individual images shot in landscape orientation to create a portrait orientation, vertical panorama.
The technique remains the same, simply allow sufficient overlap from one image to the next so that photoshop (or whatever software you are using) can 'see' the similarity in images to merge successfully. You don't need to tell the software that the shot is a vertical rather than horizontal image as it will determine orientation of the overlapping edges.
Perhaps next time we have a rainy day I'll write a piece for the Tips & More section of the site on shooting panoramic images, it's a far easier task than it was historically.
For now I'll leave you with this vertical panorama of a beautiful spring waterfall in Banff National Park.
