Vertorama (vertical panorama)
A vertorama is an image composed of two or more photographs, joined together in image editing software, along a horizontal line, to form one image. DSLR camera’s, in their adherence to the convention of rectangular format, often stifle artists who want to illustrate the wiiiiiiiiide and taaaaaaaaaaall nature of what they see…:)) So armed with a wide or ultra-wide angle lens, they’ll take two or more landscape images of a scene, composing differently for light and/or shapes, particularly vertically. Then later, they’ll ‘blend’ the images together, one above the other, to make a single wide, tall image. You as the viewer get a much enhanced view of what the photog saw… that’s a vertorama.
