I tried something cool the other day – creating a panorama. I had never done this before. At least not since owning a late-90s era Kodak film camera that had a panorama setting. That wasn’t a real panorama, it was more like a superwide lens that used more than one frame of film. Creating one digitally was surprisingly easy. Adobe’s Lightroom software automatically stiches together selected images and produces solid results. The biggest challenge for me was deciding what to photograph.
I went with simple and had my kids and my wife pose in our front yard. I spread them out across the yard and gave them each something different to do. Then I captured each in a separate frame. The end result was a very neat stitched together panorama. I think I may start including this in my family portrait sessions. It would be fun, different, and instantly produce a very wide photograph to hang above the fireplace.
It’s good to experiment!
