Panorama whole school photograph, how is it done?
Long ago when I was a mere slip of a lad, I can remember this old guy who used to turn up at school with a funny looking camera on a tripod and a pipe that smelled like an garden bonfire. All the pupils in the school had to be arranged on various benches and chairs etc.Then the magic moment, the old guy would command everyones attention and press the shutter. The camera would whirr and click for a second or two and then fall silent. The result was that you got to buy a photograph of every kid and teacher in the school on that day. Sadly I have lost mine. The period I am speaking about would be the early seventies,would the camera have been a roundshot? The print looked like a contact print of a full length of 120 film, is that the way these very wide panoramas are done?
