Rotating Location Scout Panoramic Website Header Images
If you haven’t already noticed, there are
48 a LOT of different rotating location scout panoramic photos on the website header area here on nyc.locationscout.us. More images will be added as time allows. The images are mostly crops of location scouting photos of locations in the New York City, NY greater metro area and tri-state area. Some have been used as header images before, but I have always only ever chosen favorite photographs to use as header images (they have to fit the long horizontal format too! 😉 so I don’t mind recycling the old photographs.
Panoramic photography is a technique of photography, using specialized equipment or software, that captures images with elongated fields of view. It is sometimes known as wide format photography. The term has also been applied to a photograph that is cropped to a relatively wide aspect ratio. While there is no formal division between “wide-angle” and “panoramic” photography, “wide-angle” normally refers to a type of lens, but using this lens type does not necessarily make an image a panorama. An image made with an ultra wide-angle fisheye lens covering the normal film frame of 1:1.33 is not automatically considered to be a panorama. An image showing a field of view approximating, or greater than, that of the human eye – about 160° by 75° – may be termed panoramic. This generally means it has an aspect ratio of 2:1 or larger, the image being at least twice as wide as it is high. The resulting images take the form of a wide strip. Some panoramic images have aspect ratios of 4:1 and sometimes 10:1, covering fields of view of up to 360 degrees. Both the aspect ratio and coverage of field are important factors in defining a true panoramic image.
