This week, we are taking a look at panoramic images. Panoramas are generally images that have a uniquely wide aspect ratio. We like panoramas for their creative impact. You can capture panoramic images in a variety of ways, including cropping in-camera or in post, and by “stitching” together several images captured in sequence.
