Vertical Pano

I am thinking of taking some Vertical Panos in a few weeks (Waterfalls as well as tall trees). Does anyone know if there are any difference in techiques or any tips or tricks you can share with me before I head off? I only have a ballhead right now for my tripod. I head a 3 levels head before but it is missing right now. I am a light concerned with the difference in exposure from top shot to bottom shot.

Re: Vertical Pano

Just ensure you've taken the brightest exposure (which'll be the sky) and apply that, using Manual, to all the shots

Re: Vertical Pano

Perspective will be really challenging as you will probably be working from the ground up, i.e. from one side of the panorama, which will mean refocussing and using much finer image slices to be of any use. Horizontal panos, usually taken about a central position are stitched more easily with regard to a relatively unchanging perspective.

What they said.

Also a great tutorial here http://www.pixalo.com/community/tuto...nge-30421.html

I'd also now recommend Hugin as a free stitching program.

Re: Vertical Pano

When you adjust the angle of your camera, you should rotate about the front lens element not the film/sensor plane (which normally is the case). You can buy a special bracket for this but I made my own.
