HDR and Panoramic Techniques for Landscape Photography

January 8, 2013

Harvesting the Past

Here is one of my most recent large panoramic images. I currently have prints of this made that are 50”x20” with acrylic face mounting and the result is really stunning, if I do say so myself 🙂 The file resolution is so large it could have easily been printed at twice the size and still retained the same level of detail.

The image was created from 126 separate exposures using a Canon 5D MIII camera. It is a two row panoramic image with each row made up of 9 slightly overlapping images (2×9=18). However, it is also an HDR (High Dynamic Range) image that was created by combining multiple exposures to retain detail in the shadows while holding back the highlights.  At each of the 18 different camera positions, 7 different exposures were taken (2x9x7=126).  Once the 126 images were loaded on to my computer, the real work began to create the image you see here.

If you are interested in all the details on how this image was captured and then all the details on how it was assembled and processed, then please check out this upcoming seminar being presented by The Camera Store in Calgary
