Shoot a frame to mark the end

Camera - - DIGITAL DARKROOM -

With your se­quence cap­tured, it’s a good idea to shoot an end frame. This will give an easy-to-iden­tify shot that pro­vides a vis­ual cue that your se­quence is com­plete. Some pho­tog­ra­phers shoot a ‘thumbs up’ pic of their free hand, some cover the lens for a black frame, and some shoot some­thing un­con­nected to the se­quence, like a blank shot of the sky. Whichever you go for, it’s worth shoot­ing some­thing to in­di­cate the end of a panorama se­quence, as it makes it quick and easy to iden­tify the cor­rect shots when se­lect­ing your pic­tures in Adobe Bridge. Un­less you’re go­ing to reshoot your panorama, now re­set your main mode dial to Aper­ture Pri­or­ity and flick the fo­cus mode back to AF so you’re all set to shoot nor­mally.
