Four photos from Ryan Lewis, who posts to Instagram under the account name urbanglitch. From his submission to Year of the Glitch:
I have been using the panoramic feature on my iPhone as a tool to create stretched images for a few months.
I wanted my process to be something that I physically had to work at and not just pressing buttons.
Each time I do a panoramic, I have to decide the optimal distance for the shot and path that the subject (in this case, a muni bus) is turning the corner but not coming towards you. The iPhone panoramic feature draws sliver by sliver as you move the camera across the area. As I experimented with the pictures, I was able to find the sweet spot of how to make the buses look stretched.
