Acadia Panoramic Images

Greg A. Hartford, photographer, author, publisherThere are many locations where creating a panoramic image is the best way to display what is there and to enable anyone to absorb the beauty. Fairly recent advancements and improvements in digital technology has enabled even novices to be able to create panoramic images on their cell phones by digitally stitching a series of images together. To be able to get really large files for printing wall murals, one must have a good quality camera that can produce larger images with increased pixels combined with higher bit depth. RAW files are the way to go as it is for most higher quality imaging. One panoramic image that I created recently of Mount Katahdin in northern Maine was used to create a 24 foot wide print for Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, Maine.
