Today’s episode is filled with goodies! Not only do we show you how to create a panorama in photoshop, we also give you some expert tips on shooting those panoramic images. David J. Crewe lends us his knowledge as we give you six amazing tips. To top it all off, we have a gear article specially prepared to compliment today’s episode. Now you can see the gear some of the pros are using, or just check out some budget options to get you started.

Tips From the Pros

Here are some tips for you when you’re out shooting panoramas:

1) Use a sturdy Tripod and try to stay “level” when changing positions.

2) Overshoot / Shoot wider than you need so you can crop safely.

3) Use a longer lens (50mm or higher) since you’re stitching anyway. Wider lenses give you more distortion so your images will be more realistic/normal with a longer lens.

4) Shoot higher than F8. Most time-lapser and pano shooters will swear by the F8 to F11 zones for clarity and sharpness.

5) Manually Focus to make sure everything is the same (no shifts from frame to frame).

6) Slow Shutter Speeds (or ND Filters) to reduce and eliminate distracting elements (people, animals, random motion).

  1. Hello sir.
    I know this is an old post but i need some help here if its possible.
    Does photomerge in photoshop have a limit size?
    I have a 27 (2304×1536) Bing maps snapshots to build one single big orthophoto for a master plan architecture need.
    I found the photoshop final result is a smaller image resolutions size. It results in just 6657×9985 pix. I think Photoshop automatically shrink all images to a size limit?
    Does any one have some knowledge about it?

  2. Tip 6 @2:03 really depends on your subject.
    let's say you were to photograph something with trees in it, if wind is moving the trees so much you'll get the leaves to be blurry.
    in such case, you'll need a high shutter speed not a slow one.

  3. Most cameras have the Guidelines, like Noughts and Crosses (UK) or Tic tac toe (US). Turn them on to help with your level.

  4. Great video and well explained! not in a rush just perfect and simple. Keep up the great work i just subscribed!

  5. I have taken 3 images on a white background of 3 people in each image how can I now join the three
    images together in Photoshop CS6

  6. HeybAaron how do you make a panorama shot from a video to make a backdrop for a train set to cover the whole room, about 35cm in height? like a continues print or stitch 290 cm at a time.

  7. At 4:07 in your video your different images show their final destination in the final image. When I upload mine only the first image populates the main image. The other 4 images show in the small area but there isn't anything in the small black box to the right of it. Any ideas what I could be doing wrong?

  8. Thanks for the Video! i Tried it myself it looks super awesome. But i have two people in it which look very much distorted. Lens Correction das not do the job. Is there i way to Fix it?

  9. amazing tutorial, working on my first panorama. please tell me the draw pad and pen that you are using, i think it makes editing alot easier as using a mouse is hard to control for finer details and small adjustments.

  10. So helpful, thank you very much!! Edit: I just noticed that i am 2 years late 😀 In 2015 or in 2017 this is still very helpful 🙂

  11. This guide is more focused on the needs of photographers. Those who want to make their photography look as professional, polished and above all, as competitive as they can.
