Workshop reflection

During this workshop we learnt about panoramic photography and some tips on how to do it successfully. We were then taught how to create a panoramic image using Adobe PhotoShop which was extremely useful as I wasn’t aware of this method before. I  have already started to use this method to create my panoramic images for the ‘Special Techniques’ assignment and will definitely be using after this.
