Step 3 - How to shoot panorama?
- Keep the camera in the same spot for every shot. The distance between camera and floor should be kept unchanged.
- Make sure that there is some overlap from photo to photo. For example, if you are sweeping from left to right, locate an object in the right side of your viewfinder on the 1st shot. Then make sure you can see that same object on the left side of your viewfinder on the 2nd shot. Continue this for each shot. Ideally, you should have about 25%-40% of each frame overlapping the previous frame.
- Based on the calculated number of shots required for stitching, shooting more images than required is suggested.
- Shooting photos clockwise is suggested.
- Lock the camera's exposure and white balance for all shots. This will help to avoid substantial changes in lightness/darkness from frame to frame. If you can’t or don’t want to do this, and there are substantial variations in lightness from frame to frame, take your shots with more overlap (e.g., 50% overlap from shot to shot). This will minimize the amount of lightness change from any one shot to the next shot. If you can, also lock your white balance for all shots.
- Beware of objects which move between shots. Clouds move, trees sway in the wind, and people move around. If people and/or things are moving, take your shots as quickly as possible to minimize the amount of variation between frames.
- Don't zoom in or out between frames.
