An excellent technical book covering everything from the history of modern panoramic photography through to shooting and stitching panormas.
It’s not really aimed at beginners, though there is a wealth of technical information in here it’s more for the more advanced amateur level.
The book covers a wide range of topics well, from choosing a panoramic head for your tripod, how to align your images correctly and printing your digital panoramas.
All followed up by an in-depth discussion of four panorama projects. Packed with beautiful photos (as you’d expect from a Rocky Nook photography book!), it’s an expertly constructed book, on a fascinating subject.
