Most people are familiar with regular panoramas. You start by taking several shots of the scene from left to right then stitching them together in photoshop or any other program that lets you stitch jpegs together and you end up with a full landscape panorama shot of your subject. You can also apply the same technique with a subject that is vertical, such as a tall tree, a building, a tower or just about anything you may think would benefit from a vertical perspective.
On a recent search here on WP. I was surprised to find only one post on the subject of vertical panoramas -How To Shoot Texas size panorama by Jann Alexander.
So, I decided to add my post to that category. Here is one of my Vertical panoramas taken about a year ago at Montrose Beach in Chicago IL. Instead of shooting left to right as you would do for a regular panorama, you shoot the subject from top to bottom or bottom to top. This one took five shots and I used the same method of stitching a standard panorama and although one the shots did not match completely I was very pleased with the results.
