Sweeping views abound in our world but when you put your camera to your eye, the resulting image is just missing something. Whatever lens you use, you just can’t capture the feeling of standing there. Panoramas add a powerful tool to your visual toolbox. They can empower you to capture a sweeping view no wide angle lens can, or to create relationships between elements in your photos that modern digital cameras normally can’t show. With the addition of easy immersive sharing (e.g. Facebook’s panorama viewer), panoramas can give your audience the feeling of being there.

About the Instructor

Andrew is a self-taught photographer who comes from a software engineering background. On his very first trip with a camera, he discovered night photography and has never looked back. He developed his night photography skills through trial and error in environments from the near perfect darkness of west Texas to bright urban settings around Washington DC and Austin. When not making nighttime images, Andrew is shooting for AzulOx Visuals making a variety of images from weddings, to architecture and everything in between. Andrew loves solving problems but more than that, he loves sharing his knowledge with others, helping them grow.
