Panor what????

As I’ve said in some of my earlier posts, my interest in photography started when I was in the 6th grade.  My first camera, the Kodak Disc, captured my 6th grade classmates, came with me to Disney World a year later, and even attended camp with me a few months later.  Over the years I have “graduated” to more advanced cameras, my current one (Panasonic Lumix FZ100) is powerful enough to see the craters on the moon.

Most of the pictures I take come from my handheld camera, but 6 months ago I updated my cell phone to a Galaxy S3 and now I’m using it’s camera to take pictures when I don’t have my Lumix with me.  I’m not one to read the entire instruction book cover to cover when I get new gadgets, so I mostly learn as I go, and hope I’m doing things right…

Along with the other pictures I’ve take with my phone, (see my tour of Sony Picture Studios,) I’ve recently figured out how to take Panorama pictures.  Panorama pictures are stretched out shots allowing you to widen your coverage area.  Here are a few that I’ve taken over the last week or so:

That’s it for now, I’ll be looking out for more panorama shots to take.  That, and I want to figure out how to do them with my Lumix…

HOW YOU DOIN??
