It’s important to start framing the panorama from the furthest position to either the right or left. Some phones don’t have it, along with a few other modes that are supposed to be there. We smartphone photographers have a lot fewer options compared to fancy DSLR users who have total control of their camera settings. I noticed this the other day when I was hiking one of my favorite local spots – Armstrong Woods in Guerneville, CA.
As an example, in this picture below, I wanted to capture a panoramic picture of the dirt road I’m walking down with the sign and some of the trees. To fix this ‘problem’ I recomposed my shot by starting the picture on the left and then panning to the right.
There has been plenty of hardware progression, but engineers on the software side of things have done some marvelous things in their own domain.

A panorama photo stitches together a number of shots taken in succession to create one shot of a landscape or wide subject, like a huge group shot. The camera app compensates a little, but it produces better shots when the user stays inside the lines.
The disadvantage of using a smart phone for panoramic prints is… you guessed it, the simplicity. Sometimes the simplicity of a smartphone makes it challenging to get a good shot, but there’s no need to get fancy. Now, I love hiking, but I’m not much of a morning person, and it takes about an hour to make it out to Armstrong. Using a Samsung Galaxy S4, I took this picture starting on the right and then panning to the left.
The best panoramas stitch together only a couple of shots or come from landscapes with the horizon far in the distance.
Notice how the light is balanced between the light of the sun and darkness of the branches and leaves?


Overall, this second picture looks much better because I simply changed how I took the shot, and that made all the difference. For those of you who understand the harsh effect of the midday sun on your LCD screen, you can especially appreciate how it can challenge you when getting a decent panoramic picture with your smart phone.
If I had some mad Photoshop skills, I could go in and tweak the picture to balance out the light and make it pop.
It takes a little longer to shoot the panorama, but try both and see if this tip helps get better shots. The problem starts as I pan to the left and road is reflecting the light from the sun, but the camera’s exposure is based on where I started the pan, so as I pan to the right, the picture becomes ‘blown out’ – especially the road and the sky. But sadly, I don’t possess those skills, and that is why I use my smart phone to take panoramic prints.
