"PANORAMA" ASSIGNMENT
For this assignment, we’re going to explore the use of the smartphone Panorama setting

Why panoramas?

Panoramic photos can be very beautiful and interesting. By shooting with a very wide angle of view, photos become different from the usual. Using the panorama technique can give you the opportunity to showcase the beauty of everything around you, not just nature, such as large mountains, cliffs, glaciers or deserts, but the magic of everyday life seen in a different way.

TIPS FOR THIS ASSIGNMENT:
•One important factor to always remember, just be creative. Allow yourself to be in the moment.
Your passion for what you’re capturing will come forward in those beautiful images and the viewer will see it.

•Experiment with the different styles of panoramas. Try a vertical, or "clone," or a "warped" panorama.

You can shoot pretty much anything as a panorama, but the more creative, the better.
•Use beautiful light. Try shooting during “Golden Hour” -late afternoon or early morning, it's the best light for creating captivating panoramas.
•The slanting light rays at dawn or dusk add dimension to your subject, and can make the difference between flat, or amazing images.

•Remember to adjust the exposure before you shoot -use the exposure lock on a good "midtone" in the photo to ensure a good range of tonal values throughout the image.
•Remember to crop your photos and enhance your images using your phone app.


FINAL PRODUCT:
SUBMIT TWO AMAZING "Panorama" images in the Google Classroom panorama folder.

•Pick your two best "Panorama" photographs -1 "regular" & 1 "non-traditional" style.
•Use your phone app to crop your images.
•Try converting your photos to black and white, or if you choose color, adjust the tones and color balance using your in-camera app.
•Submit your two cropped and adjusted images in the Google Classroom folder

•Remember one of these images should be a non-traditional style panorama...
