At work

Man has always dreamed of being able to see everything, and the camera makes it possible.

Photographers have always been fascinated by panoramic shots. The 1840's saw the advent of the extremely wide angle optics and lenses which could be swiveled, making panoramic photography possible. The most popular method is still panning 360 degrees on a tripod and putting the individual photos together to form a panoramic picture. The painters who mastered the art of realistically representing scenery in their panoramic pictures and cycloramas are often considered the forerunners of modern photographers.
