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.

Minimalism

The definition of Minimalistic taken fron the dictionary is: “Minimal and minimize come from the Latin adjective minimus, “least, smallest,” and people therefore useminimal to refer to the smallest possible amount”

Minimal as less elements 

Merche Suárez Louzao says: “The art of appreciating the essential” 
She describes the art of minimalism like that: When the number of recognizable and perceivable elements in a picture is minimal
