At RTV WE LOVE PANORAMAS! There’s something very appealing about the shape of a panorama photo. Perhaps it is because we see the world more in these dimensions than that of a square format of standard frames of years past. When is the last time you saw a square tube at the store?
RTV Helps You Make The Best Panoramas!
Panoramas sometimes have a bad reputation of being hard to make. One can try to take the easy way out and purchase a one shot lens only to be very disappointed with the quality, or one might spend several thousands of dollars and purchase a scan camera. Did you know that you can make a panorama photo with any kind of camera?
What is a Panorama Photo?
A panoramic photo comes from a sequence of images that are sewn together with photo stitching software. The panorama is created when you turn a camera slightly to the right for each different frame. RTV makes photo stitching and panorama creation very simple and the results are amazing.
Did you know that years ago before computers were around, students of panoramic photography would take prints, lay them out on a table and position them over each other where they overlapped and used sticky tape to hold them together?
Now that PCs and image manipulation packages are inexpensive and easy to use, high-quality panoramic prints can now be created by anyone. If you are shooting slide or negative film, you would need to have your images scanned before you do anything else.
HOW DO YOU MAKE A PANORAMA PHOTO?
At RTV we take all the confusing guesswork out of setting up your camera and hardware to make panoramas. The basic idea behind taking a panoramic photo with a regular digital camera or an SLR is that the camera is rotated around what we call the nodal point.
The nodal point is the point inside your camera where the light rays converge and flip over. It is impossible to guess the nodal point of a camera just by looking at the outside body of the camera. You will just have to take our word on it that our decade of being in business has made us experts in helping you find this “Sweet Spot”.
