Step by step Capture the big wide world
Get things right at the shooting stage, and stitching the panorama later will be simple
01 Turn heads
To ensure that your images align precisely you’ll need to use a tripod on which the head, and therefore your Nikon, can rotate freely. Attach your camera to the head, and then slightly loosen the head to allow free horizontal rotation, but no angling or tilting (see Step 03).
02 Stand tall
Position your camera in portrait orientation, as this will enable you to capture more detail, and create a taller panorama than if you shoot in landscape orientation (three or four vertical shots side by side, for example, will be taller than three horizontal shots side by side).
