Panoramic Photography
Panoramic photography refers to the area of photography dedicated to taking pictures with a wide field of view or a wide aspect ratio (i.e., a longer horizontal reach than vertical height). Landscapes and cityscapes are the most common subjects for panoramic pictures. Theoretically, panoramic photography seeks to capture images within a greater field of view than the human eye can take in. While a human eye can take in only 70 degrees to 160 degrees of a given scene, a panoramic shot generally includes 180 degrees of a field of view.
However, while this is a more traditional definition, simpler explanations define panoramic photography as pictures that present a panorama, or a comprehensive, unbroken view of a scene.



Product photography is one area of focus for commercial photographers. Other areas of expertise include: Life-style photography, food photography, architectural photography and portraiture. Commercial probably is often defined as any photography for which the photographer is paid for taking and possibly Photoshop retouching of images.
The commercial photographic world usually refers to advertising photography. That is photography made to illustrate and usually sell a service or product. These images are generally done with an advertising agency, design firm or with an in-house corporate design team using either traditional film and developing techniques or digital cameras with images that can be directly imported into computers for use in designs and layouts



Camera man operates
A cameraman operates a variety of cameras to record video film for motion pictures, television shows and commercials. He may also shoot film for sportscasts, ceremonial events or concerts. As part of camera crew, he typically works with a team of directors, technicians and performers to consult on the technical and creative aspects of the production.
Depending on his expertise and the visual demands of the project at hand, a cameraman may work with traditional film cameras as well as digital and electronic versions. He may use one type of camera for the entire job or use multiple types to accommodate certain settings and create different illusions. He often works closely with the lighting crew to enhance a shot or scene.
A successful cameraman traditionally has expertise in using different camera features to generate a wide range of images. The director, the cinematographer or the cameraman may suggest these inventive shots. Zoom lenses, filters and other photographic manipulation features are typically utilized to increase the intensity or change the mood of a shot or scene. His range of creativity is also boosted by integrating the capabilities of mobile track and crane-mounted cameras with those of stationary ones.
The three most common environments in which a cameraman works include on location, in a studio or outdoors. These venues are normally dictated by the nature of the film and the vision of the director. All three settings are frequently part of one film project.
