How to avoid par­al­lax er­ror...

Practical Photography (UK) - - Photoshopgenius... -

Stand­ing in a fixed po­si­tion and ro­tat­ing with your cam­era held at arm’s length can re­sult in a lens de­fect called par­al­lax er­ror, which will dis­tort your im­ages due to the cam­era be­ing in a dif­fer­ent po­si­tion ev­ery time a shot is taken. To pre­vent this hap­pen­ing, in­stead ro­tate around your cam­era, us­ing a rock on the floor as a fixed ref­er­ence point – keep your cam­era over it as you ro­tate around it to take your pic­tures. This re­duces par­al­lax er­ror and makes it eas­ier for panoramic soft­ware to stitch the pho­tos together.
