I really love this style. I haven't had a chance to try it for myself but I'm very interested to see what your imaginations can do with this technique!

I've actually gotten really into this method lately, too. I set something up for today so I can experiment with it and hopefully get something good to post up soon.

I tried the brenzier method a couple of times, but photoshop had some trouble merging some of the shots for some reason and it failed.

I have not done too many like this....but here is my "best" one. I took 4 separate passes. Each with its own problems when it came to stitching the individual images together. It took a lot of work manually cleaning up the final image.

EF 50mm f/1.8 lens @ f/1.8 ISO2000 1/30 sec hand held. Not really a good example. :(

It will be interesting to see if others add to this thread.

The lenses I see recommended most of the time for this method are 85mm f1.4 and 135L f2 but they were all using FF cameras with those lenses. I have a 60D so should I use 50mm f1.4 & 85mm f1.4 which is roughly the same as 85mm and 135mm on a FF camera?

I tried one today...it didnt work out too well. The stitching looked bad. I think it was user error though. You have to be sure you're covering every spot around your focus point. I'll give it another go this weekend.

Years ago I used to take a handful of photo's with a point & shoot then stitch them together with software to create a panoramic. The Brenizer Method seems like it's just that with the exception of taking the panoramic with a body/lens capable of producing a shallow DOF. I don't see what's so remarkable about it, I thought most photographer's knew how to take panorama's?

The picture dimensions you end up with are non standard as well right?

It's just a different look than we are used to. It's unique. Panoramas are one thing but bokeh panoramas are a little different. They give you DOF you cant get from just taking one shot wide open. I like shallow DOF shots...that's why this is so appealing to me.

I understand it has it's place; the best example I can think of is a wedding album that has the normal standard dimension photographs then there's a Brenizer Method photograph of the couple in focus with the background OOF covering two pages similar in dimension to walex19's Image hereexternal link

Frames by Celly & Ches has posted some excellent photographs but I struggle to see how the majority of them fall under the Brenizer Method category? If we look at the last one for example I could have taken the same image with one frame then cropped it to match it's dimensions right?

I realize that image on his computer is a lot larger than a single frame's dimensions because it's made up of multiple images but from a practical standpoint what purpose does that serve?
