Get Glitchy with Your Phone’s Panorama Function
Glitching is the digital equivalent of throwing a roll of film into water and seeing what happens.
While you might not want to dip your phone in H2O, you can get experimental with your phone photos other ways.
And by other ways, we mean panorama glitching.
All you need is a sweep of the arm to get your panorama to stitch a scene in really strange and awesome ways.
(We used iOS 6’s built-in panorama, but you can try this with pretty much any auto-stitching pano app.)
1) Stitch totally different parts of a scene
- Sweep your phone to capture one part
- Stop, then quickly move your phone to another part of the scene
- And sweep again
2) Make a jagged composition of a single subject by jerking your hand as you shoot the pano. This makes for a choppy, mosaic-like image.
Try other experiments like twisting your phone as you shoot. More examples at the link below!
BONUS: Another trick to try is getting your model to show up multiple times.
