Michael Breitung – Complete Workflow for processing Panorama Photos


Post Processing tutorial, in which I show all the techniques I used to create the panorama photo of Cape Woolamai.
The Tutorial consists of two major parts, each 75 minutes in length.

Part 1 is all about stitching and blending of the panorama and deals with:

– The exposure blending of the bracketed exposures and the cleanup
– Techniques to enhance the look of the sun in the photo
– Special image transformations and cropping

Part 2 contains my creative workflow, in which I recreate the atmosphere. It contains:

– Sky enhancement techniques
– My dodge and burn workflow
– Contrast and color adjustments
– My workflow in ColorEfex to bring more vibrance to the photo
– Methods for balancing colors in the photo
– Multi-pass sharpening to workout the details in the photo
