Use a telephoto lens and then take, for example, a 3x3 section and combine the images so that you get as much context as you would have with a wide lens - but, you get the DoF of a telephoto lens.

What's this technique called?

QUOTED IMAGE

In this example, it doesn't seem to work at all. Why? Because there is no integrity to the plane of focus. The red bus is more or less in focus, then things behind it are out of focus, then things behind them are back in focus again. It just looks like a random mish-mash of what is in focus and what is out of focus. The focus seems to have no correlation to the distance between the camera and the various elements in the scene.

This is not at all what one would get if they use the method described in the OP.

.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I believe the method the OP is thinking of is the Brenizer Method. There are already several threads regarding it on this site.

http://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1138306

The samples given in this thread are more like the Tilt-Shift Method. Photoshop does have a "blur" for this. It is often used to make every day situations look like shots of miniatures. It looks more effective if you are taking the shot from an "above" position so that the dof radiants out. Using this method taking photo straight on doesnt make "dof" sense.

The two methods yield different results.

Agree. To the OP, the method to research is the Brenizer method. The fake /photoshopped tilt-shift examples given are wrong and should be disregarded. As pointed out, there are threads here on POTN about the method. There is also a ton of outside resources (external link). Good luck. It takes a little more time to shoot and a little more time to process, but the results can be stellar.

And many videos on Youtube (external link).
