Dont sweat the technique

Hey cowboy. If you're looking for a one-trick pony, then you'll have to mosey on down to the next corral. With a mighty stallion like the Horizon in your hands, the effects that you can command are nearly limitless in scope. As if its dazzling double-wide format wasn't enough, there's a whole new world of tricks and tips out there for you to mine and discover. Here's a few quick ones to get you started.


Boy in the corner

If you're tired of all those bland portraits, then here's a little something to spice things up. As you command the Horizon's unique panoramic power, then stuff your main subject into a corner – or next to a 90-degree wall. As your lens s-w-e-e-p-s across, your subject will be left peeking out in a wonderfully distorted and almost 3-dimensional fashion.

Speed Demon

Here's a nice one – if you can outrun the Horizon's swing-lens than you can render yourself as a blur within the photo. This is most easily done with passing cars, trains, motorcycles, and bicycles. But ask a friend to give it a try. Cock the shutter, place them at one side of your viewfinder and tell them “steady…” Now, scream “go!” and hit the shutter release. Provided that they RUN LIKE HELL, you'll have one blurry friend against a sharp crispy background. And the benefits of that cannot be understated.
