The social psychology of the panoramic image as well as the technical tips related to its accomplishment are always more than welcomed.
The first stages would be: possessing the technical equipment required for a correct execution of the panorama, choosing the the panoramic setting/subject to be photographed and establishing the photographing technique in order to get the complete and ultimate psychological and visual effect/impact.
It is obvious that the usage/acquisition of a tripod is essential as well as a cap/device for panoramic photographing, which allows the perpendicular axis to be fixed in a fixed/mobile correct posture.
In this first part we will evidently discuss about the technical approach of the panoramic photograph (technical equipment). Two of the most professional models can be found at the following links Link 1 and Link 2.
It is extremely important that after setting the camera on the panoramic device you read the instructions for each device separately and on the prospects you will find accurate and precise indications on how to place your camera in the graded metallic patina.
Why is this important? Because the surface of the last lens must twist perfectly around the axis formed on the perpendicular diameter of the lens on the ground (centering the lens on the rotation axis) as well as the aligning of the nodal point to the rotation axis so that the perspective aberrations are minimal. For the fish eye lens panoramas, purchase a special device that allows the distancing of the camera on every side of the tripod or system.here ) (at Calibration - Horizontal Field of View (HFOV) area).
