Panoramas require some very specific situations and subjects to be successful. This session will teach you the scenes that may require panorama photos as well as some composition tips for you to be aware of.
We will spend time in the field and go through a panorama workflow so that you will know how to set up your camera, how to shoot your frames, and how to properly plan for your panorama sequence.
In this session, you’ll discover situations for shooting multiple exposures and how multiple exposures are different than bracketing and HDR photography.

As photographers continue to progress in their skill level, there are various techniques that they can use to effectively collect light in difficult lighting and composition situations.

Using multiple frame techniques such as panoramas and multiple exposures, photographers can shoot in an unbroken view of their surroundings and combine exposures to reveal detail in shadows and highlights.

In this Panoramas and Multiple Exposures class, you’ll learn:

  • How to shoot a panorama
  • Panorama composition
  • Situations for using panoramas
  • Important techniques for panning
  • How to shoot multiple exposures
  • How multiple exposures are different than HDR
  • Situations to use multiple exposures
  • Creating multiple exposures manually


Chances are you’ve photographed a sunrise or sunset and found it difficult to combine the bright sky colors and the dark shadows below the horizon line. All photographers have been there before. Using multiple exposures in situations like this will resolve the issue of trying to balance the intense light contrast.


Sometimes a scene doesn’t come together in one shot. To allow your audience to fully appreciate the view in front of you, it’s necessary to pan your camera and take frames in a 180 degree view. The panoramic views create a new experience for both the photographer and the viewer of the photograph.

In addition to the detailed video instruction you’ll receive, this class provides you with a downloadable class guide that was designed to complement the topics you’ll explore so you can take notes as we examine panoramas and multiple exposures.
