DPS (Digital Photography School) is at it again. Wonderfully detailed tutorial on how to take panoramic shots. The stitching would be done later on the computer. But there are quite a few things, that one needs to remember, while taking the multitude of shots, so that the final results will be awesome. 

In summary:

  • Use the panorama mode if your cam supports it
  • Overlap amply
  • Keep it on the same level
  • Take care of metering (DSLR only)
  • Check the scene for movement (no movement is best -no blurrs)
  • Be careful with wide angle lenses
  • Look up, look down, look all around.
  • Yes vertical panoramas exist
