Your assignment over the next week is to take multiple panorama style photomerges. Take a picture and then move the camera slightly up or sideways to take another "connected" image. Basically you combine smaller pictures to make one larger picture.
Use a tripod if possible. Remember to manual adjust white balance or select something like "cloudy" or "sunny" on your camera.
Here is how you connect multiple pictures in Photoshop.
To set up a new Photomerge composition:
Place pictures in a separate folder for each merge
Do one of the following:
Choose File > Automate > Photomerge.
In the File Browser, select the images you want to use and then choose Automate > Photomerge from the File Browser menu bar
In the dialog box, choose an option from the Use pop-up menu:
- Files to generate the Photomerge composition using individual files.
- Folders to use all the images stored in a folder to create the Photomerge composition. The files in the folder appear in the dialog box.
- Open Files to use the image files you have open in Photoshop.
Then edit your picture as you need.
