Panoramic and HDR Workshop


Yesterday afternoon I attended Day 1 of a photo workshop through my camera group (http://photo.meetup.com/406) at The Pier in St Petersburg, FL. There were 12 photographers in attendance and we had the most amazing sky for our shoot. My friend and Assistant Organizer, Michael Richter, led the workshop.

This photo is my favorite panoramic shot of the St Petersburg, FL skyline. It is made with 13 shots and the original size is a whopping 61 inch x 9 in photo at 180 MB. Obviously, I've resized it for this blog. You can see a larger version of this shot by clicking on it.

I processed the Camera RAW photos with Adobe Lightroom, then brought them into Adobe Photoshop CS3 and used the Photomerge command to stitch it all together. It took more than an hour to process it, but in my opinion, it was definitely worth it.

Enjoy,
