Panoramic photography

is a technique of photography, using specialized equipment or software, that captures images with elongated fields of view. It is sometimes known aswide format photography. The term has also been applied to a photograph that is cropped to a relatively wide aspect ratio. While there is no formal division between “wide-angle” and “panoramic” photography, “wide-angle” normally refers to a type of lens, but using this lens type does not necessarily make an image a panorama. An image made with an ultra wide-angle fisheye lens covering the normal film frame of 1:1.33 is not automatically considered to be a panorama. An image showing a field of view approximating, or greater than, that of the human eye – about 160° by 75° – may be termed panoramic. This generally means it has an aspect ratio of 2:1 or larger, the image being at least twice as wide as it is high. The resulting images take the form of a wide strip. Some panoramic images have aspect ratios of 4:1 and sometimes 10:1, covering fields of view of up to 360 degrees. Both the aspect ratio and coverage of field are important factors in defining a true panoramic image.

The Begining

Image

I never knew exactly when and why was my love for photography born. Maybe it was that day when I got my first camera, or one in which I made my first shot or perhaps it was when I exhibited my first film. This is notimportant, what matters is, and happily for me, that I was overwhelmed by this art called Photography.

Since I have consciousness, I capture sentimental moments, minimalistic things and peoples faces. It’s a little thing in life that makes me very happy and gives me pleasure.

With the development of science, technology also does it, and with it the possibility, the work of the of artists to reach a larger audience. So now I want to share my work so you can also enjoy them (nevertheless I try not to be selfish). Enjoy them and I will try to be up to date with them and publish more often.
