The Horizontal/ Vertical Pano Mambo

I create panos of stuff that is classifiable as landscape or cityscape, and it always has been about how cool the image blends together and what distortions I could create as it is about what is actually in front of the lens.  “Interesting” is a better word than “realistic,” if one has to choose between the two.  So I over shoot quite a bit.  I do a pano horizontal and then I do a vertical one.  I shoot one a bit closer and one more wide angle.  It’s inevitable one method will produce the best result but it really depends on the subject.   I think many people just shoot one pano then move on, but if it were a subject like a model, they would shoot dozens or hundreds of frames of the same scenario trying to get one great image.

The Desert Dome at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo- the top is created as a vertical pano of 6 images, the bottom as a horizontal pano of 6 images.  Both were merged using the "auto merge" feature in Photoshop.
