Pros: Helpful examples, Well-written, Accurate, Concise

Best Uses: Intermediate, Expert

Describe Yourself: Developer

An excellent technical book covering everything from the history of modern panoramic photography through to shooting and stitching panormas.

It’s not really aimed at beginners, though there is a wealth of technical information in here it’s more for the more advanced amateur level.

The book covers a wide range of topics well, from choosing a panoramic head for your tripod, how to align your images correctly and printing your digital panoramas.

All followed up by an in-depth discussion of four panorama projects. Packed with beautiful photos (as you’d expect from a Rocky Nook photography book!), it’s an expertly constructed book, on a fascinating subject.
