Planning out your shot will save you a ton of time and stress later on in the editing process. Not to mention some photos just can’t be fixed afterward, no matter how much you crop and how many filters you put on them! Download the Taking Great Photos project card (PDF).

Make a panorama the hard way

Panoramas are awesome. They're all big and full of majesty and stuff. Just about any smartphone these days can take one. But you want to know how to do it yourself. Maybe because you want to use a better camera than the one on your phone. Or maybe you want your pano to go up and down instead of just left to right. Maybe you have some other fancypants reason I can't even think of. Whatever, I'm not a mind reader. Let's make a panorama. Download the Panorama project card (PDF).
