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).
