Faced with a lovely horizon on a sunny day at the beach I decided to try the panorama app that I have – easy to use as long as you start on the left of the image and pan right. It creates lovely images of a broad view but then I started playing with creating a distorted image
I like the ones where I turned around as I scanned so that I get a flat image that I can’t actually see with my eyes (and to think they used to say the camera never lies). In this image I was looking out to sea and the benches were on my immediate left and those building on my immediate right so I’ve captured 180 degrees
then I played with following the railings – didn’t manage a smooth pan here but I like the effect.
And my favourite is also a distortion but you wouldn’t know it – I like the lines converging and big sky
I was disappointed that I can only take a horizontal panorama – even though you can use the phone either horizontal or vertical you can only pan right – you can’t pan down.
I’ll be experimenting some more with this app in different places and looking at what other apps I can use – it seems that many of the fabulous apps that Jill and Miriam use are for the other kind of mobile devise. Anyone else use android and have recommendations for photo effect apps? And any tips for fun with panorama mode?
