The research study develops a production framework for the combination of high dynamic range imaging (HDRI) and spherical panorama. Spherical panorama imagery in digital can virtually provide interactive and wider viewing coverage to the viewers however exposure range can be a major difficulty for reproducing sufficient luminance from the high contrast real-world scene. Imaging variables caused by obstacles and issues can occur during the production process when producing spherical panorama facilitated with HDRI resulting inaccurate image reproduction of the location-based subject. Towards lean approach in the possible ideal situation, production processes and imaging variables can be reduced to minimal as for the occurrence of technical obstacles and issues, hence leading to possible improved photographic image reproduction with least visual abnormalities. The research takes architectural context as case study subject of location-based content for data collection and analysis conducted during the production framework development.
