iPhone Panorama Tricks are simple and helpful in clicking photos of large objects without any additional equipment or accessory and crop out. A little bit of mastery of panorama mode could cover the landscape, a large group of people, or where the whole scene cannot be accommodated in a single frame otherwise.

The iPhone camera cannot do really well at some tasks. For instance, take vertical photos covering larger objects like forests, tall objects, and trees. Though it changed through time since 2007 when it was born. Panorama trick is a ‘game-changing’ hack on iPhone for professional-looking photos.

Most travelers and fashion-oriented folks were surprised by created content with the panorama tricks on the iPhone. It is quite simple to do, flip the phone camera to face vertically on panorama mode. Now close up the angle to become parallel to the subject. The panorama feature would cover the entire background of the photo on capture.

Moving your camera from one point to another with elegance to get the whole scene in the frame by using panorama features could cover large background. Being creative enough, you’ll be able to experiment with your photos by making clones of yourself. To add a hilarious (or scary) effect to your photos, wash out a part of your body from the frame. And a lot more you can do to capture viral videos and pictures.

To understand what exactly panorama tricks are and how they work. This post will explain the whole story of taking ‘game-changing” professional-looking photos on an iPhone. Without wasting time by thrashing the bushes around let us dive in to learn the top three of these iPhone panorama tricks!

What Is A Panoramic Photo?

What Is A Panoramic Photo

A panoramic photo is a camera tactic that captures pictures with horizontally (or vertically) enlarged fields of vision using specialized software or cameras. The term “wide format photos” is also used to describe it.

In order to qualify as panoramic photos, the height-length ratio of the image must be at least 1/2. The view field might not be that valuable, even though some fans of this feature prefer it when it’s more than 120° to at least grasp the perspective of human eyes, which is roughly 140°.

Panoramas prove useful when it comes to photographing scenes that are too wide or too tall.

How to Capture a Panorama?

First, let’s understand the whole concept of the panorama feature and how it works to cover the large subject images.

There are two ways of clicking panoramas:

Stitching of Photos

One way is to get pictures of different viewpoints in a field and ‘stitch’ them together using post-processing software to get a single wide-angle picture covering the entire scene.

The Pano Feature

The Pano Feature

If you’re an iPhone user, you don’t have to go through all the struggle of clicking different photos and then stitching them together, all you need to do is go to the Pano mode on your phone’s camera and start shooting.

To capture the whole scene, move your phone in the direction of the arrow on your screen while pressing the shutter.

‘Gaming-Chaning’ iPhone Panorama Tricks For Pro Photography

Apart from capturing the whole scene in a single frame, such as that of a landscape, the panorama can give you some shocking results when used the right way, such as creating your clone or turning yourself into an alien. See how:

The Multiple Person Illusion

This is how it goes:

Select the panoramic photo feature on the iPhone’s camera.

Get into the frame and remain still.

Begin sliding the phone until you are out of the visual field to get your first clone in the frame.

Once you’re done with the first pose, run from behind the camera to the other side to get to the other side of the frame. So, if you’re shifting from left to right, escape the frame on the left, run from behind the camera, and stand on the right side where the camera will soon reach you.

Get to the desired pose for your next clone and stand still. Complete the image.

This is one of the simplest and speediest ways to get yourself a double role in photos.

The ‘Durga’ Illusion

The 'Durga' Illusion iPhone panorama trick

I named this one the Durga illusion because, just like the Indian goddess Durga, you can have many arms using this panorama trick.

To do this:

Start by standing 5 ft away from the iPhone, and get to the Panorama feature of the camera.

Stand with your arms stretched out so that you ‘touch’ the camera frame on either side to see if the position is good for the shot. 

Once you’re in a suitable position, start the panorama shot in a vertical order from bottom to top. The arrow on the screen should be pointing towards your toes (or shoes). 

First, pose your arms in a lower position to get your first pair of arms in the frame. Hold this position and move the camera slowly until the arrow points to the chest.

Change the position to get the ‘second pair’ of your arms (preferably with arms stretched out straight on either side). Keep this position until the arrow reaches your throat.

Change to the next gesture once the arrow hits your throat and continue moving upward till you finish shooting. 

Make sure you don’t change your facial expressions or the position of your other body parts while the camera is still shooting. 

The outcome ought to be a version of you with many arms. 

Hold My Head

Hold my Head iPhone panorama trick

This is a panorama shot that should include more than one person in the frame. One person should be there to ‘hold the head’ of the other, and if there are more people, they can just give shocking expressions to the ‘floating head’.

To capture this:

Maintain the right distance from the camera. The distance should be measured just like we discussed in the previous frame, i.e., by stretching out your arms and touching the frame on both sides. 

The first step then is to touch the top of the screen to make the arrow change its direction from upward to downward, as you’ll be moving your camera downward to get this type of click.

Make the actors get into position, where one person will stand with a shocking yet funny expression, and the other person will hold his hair and pretend he’s holding the head in the air.

To get started, adjust the camera to the ceiling or wall above your head and start sliding downwards slowly. Do it until the arrow reaches the throat.

Then, pause for a moment and make the actor whose head is in the hand of the other actor leave the frame so that the rest of his body is not recorded in the shot, hence making it appear that his head is floating in the scene.

The result will look terrifying and hilarious at the same time.

It’s a Wrap!

These are the 3 tricks that will give you awesome results. Don’t just stick to these, polish your brain and be creative with your clicks to find more ways you can use panorama to get unique photos that will make everyone’s jaw drop. 

However, don’t expect to get the desired results on the first try. Everything needs practice, especially the things that everyone will definitely admire in the end.
