Grand Staircase-Escalante


Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Utah

November 6, 2015escalante 37 pano19 mm: ISO 200: f/18: 1/125 sec.

Jogging back to the parking lot from the Toadstools in Grand Staircase-Escalante, I had to stop and shoot the range with its awesome striations.  It was mid-afternoon so the light was very harsh so I decided to use the opportunity to practice different techniques.  The result–this 18-image composite.

First, there are six different focal points to ensure maximum depth of field.  For each focal point, I also took three different exposures.  In lightroom, I blended the three exposures for each focal point into 1 hdr image so I was left with 6 different hdr images for each focal point.  Those images were then taken into photoshop and blended to expose the in-focus portion of each image.
