I make tons of panoramic photos, up to and even above 360 degrees.
Now it seems to be that I am one of the very few to do that. And it is a little tricky at first. But as easy as taking a normal photo if you have done it a few times. Just a bit more work.

Is anyone interested in a little tutorial on how to make them, and process them on the computer? So from setting up tripod/camera to the finished photo?

If there are people interested, I will be using Adobe Lightroom, but that program costs only about R800 lately. And you need it anyway. And I will use some free programs.
You will also need a good tripod, ball-head and a little spirit level.

Now you want to tell us - after I just returned from Camdeboo and the Valley of Desolation :twisted:

Ah well, all the more reason to get back there, and Golden Gate, and up the Marakele mountain, and, and... :thumbs_up:

But, first things first - what's your secret to get to those spots during the Golden hours, hehehehehehe

I quite enjoy taking panoramics aswell.

One of my favourites can be found here http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Z06X5m37R14/T ... ramic2.jpg

Dunno how to make a link, sorry

But I'd love to learn more about them

Okay.... It is going to take a bit of time though, I will need to kick GP from her computer. And as she is my SO I prefer her to stay happy with me. ;)

Hey Duques

I also make quite a few panoramics and want to see the differences between how you do it and how I do it.

Not sure how to make a link but that's a link to some of my panoramics taken in Lesotho a couple weeks ago
