Panoramic photographs are attention-grabbing and dramatic, rendering them the perfect statement pieces to hang up at home!
Until recently, only professionals with fancy equipment could take panoramic photos. But advancements in technology have made high-quality cameras with panoramic capabilities accessible to almost everyone. With only a smartphone, you can take a beautiful panoramic photograph anytime, anywhere.
Some perks of snapping this kind of shot? Panoramas are eye-catching — they practically demand that you stop and take a look. That’s in part because of their long horizontal or vertical shapes, which reflect the way we view the world more closely than regular photographs do.
And if you’re pining for your last vacation or the town where you grew up, panoramic pictures let you relive those memories at home.

What Is Panoramic Photography?

According to Photography Life, panoramic photography combines various images together into a one wide picture that can be oriented either vertically or horizontally. Though it’s often thought of as a medium for landscape photography, vertical panoramas are often used to capture tall structures.

Panoramic photographs capture a variety of scopes — wide angle (less than 180 degrees), 180 degrees, 360 degrees, or even spherical!

Panorama means “all sight” in Greek and originated with landscape painters, who aimed to depict sweeping, wide views of pastoral sites rather than small, limited windows. The original photographed panoramas were created in a way that seems primitive in light of today’s technology.
Artists would take multiple photos of the same location and line them up by hand. This resulted in a less-than-polished product, so we should be grateful for new camera innovations that seamlessly line up the images for us!

Shooting Your Panorama

There are a few things to watch out for once you’ve found the view you want to photograph. First, make sure there are no distracting trees or bushes in the foreground of your shot. Next, find a time of day that’s calm, with little wind and precipitation. Lastly — especially if you’re shooting on a handheld camera without a tripod — be sure to hold your hand steady!

Panoply of Panoramas

Panoramas deserve a place of honor in your home. Hang your favorite shot on a blank wall for a minimalist look, or try grouping a series of photos together.

Most importantly, don’t let all the effort you put into taking your panorama go to waste with a bad printing job. Panoramas naturally call attention to themselves in any room, and you don’t want to be embarrassed by a low-resolution product.
