MYN – Hylogomphus adelphus exuvia

April 29, 2020

An Anisoptera exuvia was collected by Freda van den Broek on 10 June 2019 along the St. Croix River in Polk County, Wisconsin USA.

This specimen is definitely a member of Family Gomphidae (Clubtails), probably Mustached Clubtail (Hylogomphus adelphus).

This subject was photographed against a pure white background (255, 255, 255) using the “Meet Your Neighbours” (MYN) technique. This photo is a “one-off,” that is, not a composite image.

Eight (8) photos of the specimen were taken using an aperture of f/16; in-camera focus peaking was used to highlight select areas in each photo. Adobe Photoshop CC 2017 will be used to create a focus-stacked composite image of the exuvia.

HDR panorama composite image of Hollin Hall

January 12, 2013

The following panorama photo of Hollin Hall is a composite of six overlapping photorealistic HDR images.


Tech Tips: I used my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150 superzoom camera, Adobe Photoshop CS5, and Lightroom 4 to create a panoramic of six overlapping 16-bit HDR images; each HDR is a composite image created from three bracketed exposures, +/- 2 stops of exposure. Photoshop was used to create the HDR images and merge them into a panoramic; the resulting image was adjusted using Lightroom 4.
