Tech Tips: I used my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150 superzoom camera to shoot three bracketed exposures of the same landscape. The camera was set for manual focus at the hyperfocal distance for an aperture of f/4, based upon the instructions provided in the excellent video tutorial by Graham Houghton, “Panasonic Lumix FZ camera easier manual focus method — super point-and-shoot tip.” I used Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Lightroom 4 to create and edit a 32-bit HDR composite image of the three exposures: Photoshop was used to create the HDR image; Lightroom 4 was used to adjust the composite image.

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.
