Sample text

Panoramas—both portrait and landscape—can be created in three different ways. The first is to use a special panoramic film camera, which exposes a wider area of the negative and omits a narrow strip on the bottom and top of the negative. The second method is to combine multiple individual exposures. You can do this with careful handwork, or you can use special software, either in-camera or on your computer. The third method is to crop your photos after they’ve already been exposed. As with the first method, this has the disadvantage of wasting image information.

Nearby details and the sky are still present, but they’ve been relegated to a supporting role. Full: This is a close shot. Full shots depict one central element in its entirety along with the nearby surroundings, such as a bicycle or a car parked on the street. Medium: When an element, such as a bicycle, is cropped, and therefore no longer shown in its entirety, it is in the range of close field sizes. Here, the surroundings are unimportant, and smaller details, such as the basket of flowers and the details of the bicycle itself, are recognizable.

We perceive pictures differently than objects in the real world; all of the elements in a photo compete for our attention at the same time. The fewer points of interest there are in a photo, the more important and prominent each one becomes, regardless of the size of the objects within the frame. As a general rule, less is more. With this particular scene in Paris, three or four exposures that are less cluttered might produce more coherent, harmonious, and conclusive results than one single photo with everything included.
