How to Take a Vertical Panorama Photo on the iPhone!

Some of you might know this already but I just had a breakthrough this weekend while in some really beautiful parts of the Utah desert! I figured out that you can easily take a vertical panorama photo on the iPhone! We were at this beautiful waterfall and when we hiked below it, there was also a huge pine tree above it. I was frustrated that I couldn't get a good composition of the waterfall AND the whole tree in one shot. Here's what it looked like:

I'm pretty sure right after I took this I said out loud, "Man, I wish you could take a vertical panorama so I could get that tree in my shot".

Here's my shot! It's WAY better, right? YAY!

Sometimes I am the one learning as I go too :) Anyway, I was pretty excited about my discovery and thought I'd share the tip with you readers out there!! Take your iPhone landscapes to the next level with vertical panoramic photos.
