Introducing the Up Arrow Panorama with Half Dome at Sunset by John P. DeGrazio

Innovation is at the heart of every great artistic movement. Over the past three years, I’ve been amazed with the technological advancement of cameras, and phone cameras in particular. I currently own an iPhone 5 and will be looking forward to the release of the 6 which I am anticipating will be in the fall. One of my favorite features of the 5 is the Panorama setting in the Camera app. I have been playing around with a few ways to hold the camera and even posted about it in a recent blog post about capturing waterfalls with an offset angle. This past week, I feel I have mastered a couple new techniques, one of which I am calling the Up Arrow Panorama. It feels like I have been shooting in the park nonstop these days, which means I have a huge backlog of photos and stories to share. There are two magical trips I will be writing about in the near future, but here are the panoramas from them for now. Stay tuned…
