Photo Merging the Front Range

Last night I lugged my DSLR, lenses, and tripod to the top of Horsetooth Rock for my first real photo merging into a panorama experience. This is an in depth process, and there is by no means one way to achieve great photographic results. For instance, I used a tripod thinking it would make for an easier merging process. Wrong. Well, in this case. I have an ultra wide angle lens which already adds distortion to photos.

Something I’m really glad I did was use strictly manual settings on my camera. It takes more knowledge and even a little trial and error for me still, but it streamlines the process in Lightroom afterwards. After importing the photos into Lightroom, all you need to do is edit ONE photo the precise way you want it (general presets, no brushes, filters, etc). Hold down the shift key, select all the photos you want to incorporate into the panorama, and then sync, tah-daa!

I used a Lightroom/Photoshop/Lightroom process. I’ll post a video or podcast on how I did it at another time.

Ok, time to see a couple of my favorite panoramas from last night!

These photos are massive in size. Around 11,000 pixels each. That equates to them spanning almost 10 feet in length before image quality will be compromised. Go big or go home, eh? πŸ˜‰
