Composite Photos

One of our Community members, stratski, shares a step-by-step guide in this tipster. "This is not about getting a perfect representation. Every picture is taken at a subtly different angle. For some you have to tilt your camera up, for others you shoot straight ahead, or turn left or right. The perspective in every picture will differ."
