Leon Sullivan Way
I am learning how to make panoramic photos. This is kind of a cheater method -- I took several photos, pivoting from one side to the other, overlapping each photo by about 1/3. Then, I put them in photoshop (CS3) and it actually analyzes the photos and overlaps and rotates them to fit. The result is pretty neat! Click the photo above for a larger image, or go here to see even bigger versions.
I like how the perspective is distorted. It would have to be, because you're looking at 180 degrees simultaneously. It reminds me of the really old panoramic photos made with special cameras back at the turn-of-the-century.
I will definitely have to experiment with this some more.
