During my travels I took a number of panoramic pictures, some good, some not so good. Good, consistent looking panoramics were hard to capture. Why? Well, there were a number of reasons. The major reason I discovered was lack of consistent lighting throughout the 360 degrees of picture taking motion. Since I had limited control over my camera's shutter speed, moderate to severe variations in lighting would blight my photo efforts.
Another challenge faced was to keep the camera steady throughout the turning motion. What I really needed was better equipment but my trip wasn't supposed to be all about the photos. Picture taking was just a small part of my cross-country adventure experience, so moderate focus on photo details was in order.
After all digital images are recorded, there is the whole picture stitching process, because a panoramic picture is actually an amalgimation of many pictures. In the end, most of my favorite panoramics were not 360 degrees, but that's okay. I still managed to capture a few good ones anyway.
