Vertical Panos
« on: November 21, 2012, 11:22:52 AM »


I was asked a number of times if I have any vertical panos. I do not but will add some at some point.

For those of you who do vertical panos, what kinds of subject matter to you employ, and is your perspective? Do you capture from the top down, from the middle, or from the bottom up? Also do you do multiple column vertical panos or single column?

Thanks!

The only vertical pano I can remember doing was of three tall tulips next to each other: papa tulip, mama tulip, and baby tulip. It came out very nice and looks good framed. The aspect ratio was about 2:1, anything more starts to get awkward.

I use them mostly on river overlooks where both breadth and depth are desired. I try and avoid generating a strip by using just two shots, with lots of overlap of course.

Depends on the scene, but they have their place...

I haven't done any for print, but have seen some awesome examples at places like Peter Lik and other galleries.  The only advice I can give is, IMO they look like absolute crap with any keystoning.

This vertical came to mind; quite an ambitious undertaking: http://www.nationalgeographic.com/adventure/0402/exclusive.html

I do them occasionally. I posted this one, a three-shot vertical stitch, here a while ago and I have a print of it on my wall. I'm quite pleased with it; Autopano did a good job at removing keystoning.
