Panoramas with the La Sardina!

11

I’ve been into Lomography for nearly 2 years now and as a designer I love eye catching images. I really love trying new things with photography. I’m a big fan of multiple exposures and now doing panoramas when possible!

Creating a panorama is simple and you can use any kind of camera and any film. For this I used the new Lomography La Sardina and Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100

  • Step 1: Find a suitable subject, a bridge, iconic landmark, fields or just something you love. (preferably not moving)
  • Step 2: Always start on the left! take a photo, try to stay still and wind on your film.
  • Step 3: Staying in the same spot, move your camera round to the right a little, making sure you still have part of what you took before in your viewfinder, so you can overlap your picture. take another shot and wind on.
  • Step 4: Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you have taken your whole desired image.
  • Step 5: Once you have got your film developed. scan in your images. (or use supplied images from lab scans)
  • Step 6: Open a new document in Photoshop or similar to your desired size, and place all your panorama images in the new document.
  • Step 7: Overlap your images so they all line up over each other. tip: take the opacity down on your overlapping images so you can line them up properly.
  • Step 8: Once you have your desired image, crop (I like to have a black border as I feel it gives the image a punch) and admire.

    Yes, there is other software available and cruzon mentioned.
    You can also go all out analogue by having them printed, stick them together and mount them on a board, it works just as well :)

    PhotoShop!?!? X-(
    Search in the tipster how get endless panoramas with any cameras without photoediting softwares!

    andredimu - There is pretty minimal photoshop (other than placing your images on top of each other). I know you can do endless panoramas with any camera, without photo editing, but this is creating panoramas with a different approach, you get a completely different effect. Surely that's what Lomography is, experimenting with what you can do with photography??
