    “Beautiful Panoramas Made Easy”

    Tim Mathiesen

    Panorama photographs, once only possible with special format cameras, can now be created with any digital camera.  This program will take you through the creation of beautiful pans using your favorite camera and software.  Whether you are using a high end DSLR, Mirrorless, a point-and-shoot or your smart phone, you will learn how easy it is to create panoramic images.

    During the program, we will discuss equipment, accessories, exposure and techniques that will make stitching simple and fun.  We will actually create a pan while you watch.  Software will be discussed, as well as plug-ins that will make your images even more beautiful.  Come prepared to learn the simple techniques that will enhance your landscape photography.
