I never really work it out how to make a panorama picture. do you need a special camera or it can be done using any camera? or is it done by cropping few inches the top and bottom of the picture? just curious

Rad,
You don't need a special camera. A wide angle lens helps. I took this shot on a 10-20mm set at 10mm, then ended up cropping to create this shot. Lots of ways to get there...I find most of them accidentally.

Arlene,

:D Sometimes.

Thanks Shea,

Really digging your art.

Any tips for people like me who don't have that sort of camera with such lens? I mean... by using a phone camera? (Samsung i450) =D

I would take the photo sideways to get the widest perspective possible, then trim the top/bottom to achieve the look you like. You can also take multiple photos and use stitching software. I haven't done this, but have seen it done.
