A Panoramic Phocus on Phoneography

Panoramic Phocus on Phoneography | ©Tom Palladio ImagesThis being the fourth Phoneography Monday of the month, digital ring tone shooters can choose a topic off the à la carte menu for this week’s challenge.

Because I’ve been sorta-kinda on vacation for the past two weeks, I compiled quite a few TRAVEL shots, so that’ll be the category of this phoneographic photo shoot around the Province of Trento in the Trentino Alto Adige region in northern Italy.

Armed with my iPhone 5, with its nifty panorama camera function, here are a handful of frames with some very elongated fields of view.

If you occasionally shoot with an iThingie, why not join in the fun and hone your craft. There’s a rotating Phoneography Challenge each and every Monday. For details, visit Sally’s Lens and Pens by Sally.

Until next Monday, let your phone be your lens.

  1. These are cool shots. I wonder which would be cheaper – an i-thingie or a panoramic lens. I don’t carry a mobile (as they say in the UK) so I would buy the i-thingie just for taking pictures. What a crazy world of technology we live in. 😀 What crazy people we are (I am) – I would prefer to carry a heavy camera over a little phone because I travel light around my dot on the map.

    1. Pat — I don’t believe there is a panoramic lens camera add-on, but there are cameras that do only panoramas. Rather than run out a buy a new camera — save the $s for an iPhone 5 or 5S — check your current DSLR and read up on “sticking,” where you shoot several shots along the same plane then stitch them together, via a software program like PhotoShop, for the panoramic effect. That said, it’s a snap with the iPhone 5 panorama lens setting. Just start from left or right and then pan slowly, keeping the arrow on a level plane. It takes practice, but the results are pretty cool.

    1. Sally — Still waiting for the “results to come in” on the H2O therapy. Not to worry, I’ll go back for another session in six months. I’ve seen some improvement and hope that it’ll continue to sway on the good side of the ledger. Glad you liked this set of very wide views.
