Taking Panoramic Shots
Pondicherry Wildlife Refuge – Jefferson, NH
Tip 1: This image was stitched together from a number of separate frames. A new feature in CS3 that makes this process a lot easier is called zoomify. Of course you need CS3 for this feature, but to find out more, visit www.zoomify.com.
Tip 2: Need a portable, inexpensive tripod in a pinch? All you need is a latex glove and some rice, lentils, small beans, sand, or a similar substance. Simply fill the glove and you′ll have a bean bag on which you can rest your camera. The last step is to either use a self timer or very carefully trip the shutter.
