    How to annoy photography snobs: 09 Imperfect joins

    Panograph photography: how to and assemble on-trend low-tech panoramas

    Joining multiple images is a great way of creating a much larger image than you can normally with your camera.

    You can join them to create a long thin panorama, or tile lots of images to make a huge picture with the same aspect ratio as your camera produces.

    There are a few panoramic heads available to help you get the perfect shots with just the right degree of overlap and there are several software packages, including Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, that will help you stitch the images together, but the process still requires care and attention.

    The tell-tale signs of a joiner, that will set a photography bore clucking, include changes in exposure, vignetting fading in and out, misaligned elements, and barrel or pincushion distortion in each frame creating a wave pattern across the image.

    If getting all this right sounds like too much of a performance, why not create a joiner from images that aren’t perfectly spaced or aligned so the end result looks like a stack of prints have been lined up?

    There’s a charming honesty to it that can look great. It works for David Hockney.
