    i have a project due for my B+W1 class and im doing a panoramic of the downtown skyline for extra credit. the shots were taken portrait style and will be printed roughly 5x7. im going to be using one long piece of matt board but my question is....how far apart should the pictures be spaced apart so you can still get the feelings of a panoramic? i was thinking 1/2 inch. but i may go down to 1/4 inch.

    I would suggest merely laying them out on a board with a small roll of tape on their back and adjust until "YOUR" vision is accomplished. Then the work will be truly yours.

    you could take a piece of white paper, the same length of the back board your going to use. take some color construction papers and cut it the size of the photos and place them on the white paper, tape them down and tape the whole thing on a wall some place that you will be able to see it often. leave for a day or so , which will give you some sense of how the project will look when mounted and hung.
