Sweeping views abound in our world but when you put your camera to your eye, the resulting image is just missing something. Whatever lens you use, you just can’t capture the feeling of standing there. Panoramas add a powerful tool to your visual toolbox. They can empower you to capture a sweeping view no wide angle lens can, or to create relationships between elements in your photos that modern digital cameras normally can’t show. With the addition of easy immersive sharing (e.g. Facebook’s panorama viewer), panoramas can give your audience the feeling of being there.
