Top 10 iPhone Panoramas of 2013
The following are my top ten iPhone panorama photos from this year and a few lessons learned after 6,000 plus attempts….
• A steady hand and smooth panning will achieve the best results.
• Great light is everything when your dealing with a fixed 4mm f/2.4 lens.
• Composition includes anchoring your sides and looking for symmetry.
• Double Exposed works best when your subject is about 10 feet away.
• Set your focus and exposure on a neutral tone somewhere in the center.
