So, you think the panorama feature on your new iPhone is pretty sweet, right? It allows you to take panoramic photos without any special post-shot software, and you can shoot left to right or right to left.

But what if you want to take a picture of a super tall Sequoia tree, for example? Or a skyscraper, for that matter? Turns out you can shoot really tall things, too, using this vertical panorama picture tip.

Launch your Camera app and tap on Options near the top. Tap again on Panorama, and you’ll see the familiar arrow and panorama alley. Now, simply rotate your phone to a landscape view. Start your shot at the top, and move your iPhone downward to capture the tall picture, or tap the screen once to flip the arrow and start your shot at the bottom. Either way, when you’re done, you’ll have a nice tall panoramic photo that will be oriented horizontally, so you won’t have to rotate it in software somewhere.
