The Hand Knows

After a day of shooting panoramic images, its hard to know whether you’re coming or going.  More accurately, it’s pretty difficult to tell where one panoramic image series begins and another one ends.Don’t worry, we’ve got a great gear recommendation for you (and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg).

Simply hold your hand in front of the camera and fire off a reference frame.  Sure it seems ridiculously simple, but it really does work.  Just remember to shoot a clear frame to start the panorama.
