Panoramic photography is a popular technique explored by photographers working in landscape, commercial, architecture, travel, and people photography. There are many groups and associations especially for panoramic photography, such as the International Association of Panoramic Photographers. IAPP holds international conferences and publishes a journal. Members include professionals from the motion picture industry, NASA, computer science industries, journalism, art and commercial photography. This comprehensive study of panoramic photography covers all the basics, including photo-optical principles, composition, various types of panoramic cameras, and presentation and storage issues. Arnaud Frich, one of the world's preeminent panoramic photographers, uses examples of his own work to illustrate the equipment and technical principles used to create panoramic images. The inclusion of the photography and advice of other panoramic photographers rounds out the approach.
