A lot of you guys know the photo industry like the back of your hand, and as you may know I shoot 360° pano's for real estate. I have been becoming much more of a perfectionist as I shoot more and more luxury homes. My objective is to achieve as much dynamic range as possible. Currently that requires a hand job (3 or more sets of exposures). Would love to get this process simplified How could I get the light in say, a living room, to get closer to the outside world so that it isn't such a challenge to see out the windows in a 360° environment? Here's an example of what I do currently with 3 sets of exposures. It takes way too much time to put the different sets together and make it look good. I read about Medium Format Digital Camera Backs like the Leaf Aptus 17 that supposedly can achieve 12-stops of dynamic range, but as soon as you call them on it, they start backing up. I guarantee you if I could get 12-stops I'd spend the $30K to put a system together. I just believe it's all a sales pitch and not a lot of truth. So I'm back to lighting... Can anyone shed some <cough> light on this subject for me?
