Picture this: you step into an outdoor scene to photograph a pristine landscape, but you can only fit about half of what you want into the frame. You probably think, “I wish I could compose a high quality, epic shot to get everything I can see into one photo!” That’s where panoramas come into play in outdoor photography. Photographing a really nice panorama can elevate your composition and actually make you a more creative outdoor photographer. However, several things can go wrong when you’re planning, constructing, and shooting a panorama. In this video, David Johnston is going to take you into the field to the Outer Banks of North Carolina to show you exactly how to photograph an epic panorama of a seascape image featuring Cape Hatteras Lighthouse during sunset.
