Do not let another breathtaking scene go undocumented. Learn how to capture wide landscapes using panoramic shooting techniques, whether you're using an iPhone or a professional DSLR. Rich Harrington explains general panoramic concepts, like field of view and nodal point, and then describes the technical details for getting great original shots: how to properly mount the camera on a tripod, how to overlap each shot, which lenses deliver best results, and more. Next, learn about optional hardware like the GigaPan system and sliders, and a variety of mobile apps for capturing 360 panoramas. Finally, come back into the studio to learn how to process the photos in Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, and Camera Raw.

One other app I like for shooting interactive 360 degree panos is 360 from Occipital. It also has some advanced features which are really nice for animation users with the ability to show the image in a couple of different layouts. Here's how it works. I'll just launch it, and, it's somewhat similar to Photosynth, in that you're going to be turning around, in a circle, to get the shot. All I do is line up with the initial start, frame it up, and I click Start, and I begin my pan. What's nice though is that I don't have to stop as much as I do with Photosynth.
You'll notice that I can just seamlessly turn around and it starts to stitch those. And so it's just basically a slow pan. Making it a little faster to build your shot, which is good on a windy day like today. I can go in either direction, and let's go down for the floor, turning in a small, relatively tight circle. And the shot is captured. Now once you've got that in the can, it's very easy. You can share it out to social networks, or save it off as a flattened panoramic, or in a rounded image type, as well.
