Making a Panoramic Image .
Marys shell in Cleveleys , Blackpool .
1 . First Compose and rotate the camera handheld to find your best panorama spot .
2 . Next level the tripod by using the spirit bubble . Then use the virtual horizon on your camera if you have one . On the nikon D750 press the info button untill it appears .
3 . Set Auto white balance or set to daylight in each for consistency if you are unsure then you can alter in post process .
4 . I then use and set to either f22 or f 16 and focus to infinity .
5 . Loosen the panning on your tripod when you take each picture with 50 % overlap .
Tighten up on each shot .
6 . I use 5 to 10 vertical portrait images for a panorama . For a good print 5 is best .
File> automate> merge> browse (insert files ) . Tick blend images together . You can tick vignette removal if you want , but you don’t have to . Tick geometric distortions correction and only use Content aware if you are certain as it cannot be completely relied upon .
