I just put my new GH4 through its paces.  The above photo is a five-shot HDR to capture the full dynamic range of the scene.

  • Panasonic GH4 in Bulb Mode
  • Focal Length17mm
  • Aperture ƒ/20
  • ISO 200


I shot the image from a small Joby Gorillapod to give it a stable platform and released the shutter with the new TriggerTrap.  The five exposures were first developed in Adobe Camera Raw then merged with Photomatix Pro.  Black and White Conversion and dodging with Adobe Photoshop.

  1. I love Seattle…. and I like your photograph, both the composition and processing.

  2. Great perspective, nice work!

  3. This is the result of opening ones’ personal aperture enough to yield greatness by combining a simple setting with a little imagination. Nicely done!!!

  4. Beautiful!
