Vertoramas: Just Like Panoramas, Only More Vertical
feature-vertoramas2

We hereby proclaim our allegiance to vertical. No more horizontal for us!

Vertical is clearly greater than horizontal.
Waterfalls > rivers.
Skyscrapers > urban sprawl.
And funicular railways beat garden-variety train tracks all to pieces.

Try making a few vertical panoramas and you’ll see we’re right. It’s just like taking normal panoramas, only you go up instead of across.

Vertorama Version One: Stack two horizontal photos on top of each other to make a single square one.

Why, you ask? Because you can get the foreground & background in focus at the same time. Ultra wide-angle + infinite depth of field? Don’t mind if we do!

Vertorama Version Two: Keep stacking photos until the panorama’s as tall as you want!

You’ll find it quite useful for photographing the vertical wonders of the world, like:

Vertoramas: 2 Horizontal Photos = 1 Vertical Panorama

p.s. We’ve teamed up with JPG for an all-out lightpainting challenge! Get your flashlights a-flyin’ and you could win a copy of our choice new book! Look, tips!
