Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Panoramic HDR, part of Shooting and Processing High Dynamic Range Photographs (HDR).
You might already be familiar with panoramic stitching, the process of…shooting a series of overlapping images and then using Photoshop or another…piece of software to stitch those into a seamless, perspective-corrected…panorama of your scene.…You can do that with HDR also.…It's a pretty simple process in its conception.…It just takes a lot of work as you've got a lot of files to manage.…What I've done here is I have shot three bracketed sets of HDR images.…I'm going to go into Filmstrip mode here so we can get a bigger view. So here's one set.…
It's a normal three-shot bracket.…Then I panned to the right and you can see the pan happened right there and I…shot three more images.…Again, another bracketed set, and then I panned to the right again and shot…another three images.…So I can get all of these merged and stitched into a single seamless panorama.…All I have to do is just go through the normal steps that I would go through for…HDR and then stitch the results.…So stack those up there and let's see how this works.…
