Panoramas is quite common these days and mostly done by people using a photo. The nice thing I like about panoramas is giving the viewer a feeling of being there. I do landscape panoramas but also focus on the subject when close. I used a shift tilt lens in the past which makes it easier to do panoramas, but the software today does a great job stitching the photographs into one panorama.
With the Canon 24 F/3.5 shift tilt lens I used a tripod and made sure everything was perfectly leveled. Now I use a tripod which is still leveled and a regular lens. When I start shooting the photos, I move only about 50% and then take the next shot. This makes it much easier to build the panorama without much warping by the process.
I use Adobe Lightroom Classic and Photoshop to do my post processing. I spend most of the time in Lightroom Classic and move to Photoshop as needed. There are a few plugins I used to help in Photoshop which include Luminar 4 and Topaz. I always use what is called a smart object in Photoshop before using filters so I can use a mask to only allow what was needed by the filter. I find that plugins do more than what is needed and the smart object controls that.
