7. Create height with vertical orientation
Shoot with your camera in a vertical orientation to capture a larger vertical field of view so your panorama will have more height.
8. Go steady
Use a sturdy tripod and do not move the tripod or the shooting position between shots in one sequence.
9. Detail, detail, detail
Scenery with lots of detail will create more accurately stitched panoramas as stitching software relies on detail to find reference points for aligning and stitching images together.
