Someday I'll be able to find the shots I did using this method back in 2005 with my Powershot S50. It was taught to me by someone I met while travelling, in the context of trying to squeeze narrow DoF out of a compact camera sensor. I know Brenizer has successfully associated his name with it despite its existing long before he popularized it, but to me it'll always be the "very attractive middle-aged German woman whose name I forget" method!

Or an expansion, or a stitch, or a bokeh panorama among many other names.

An old shot of mine - 3x3 shots stitched with hugin, shot with 135L on 50D:

So, I tried this with a cup with my 85mm 1.4 @ 1.4, used 23 photos.

Set WB, set manual exposure, manual AF, started in the middle and did a spiral out to the edges. Afterwards I opened the photos in lightroom, applied the sigma 85 lens profile to remove vignetting, then exported files as 3 megapixels, put them into MICE and this is the product.

I ended up with some strange looking bokeh, can anyone help me understand why the bokeh would look like this?

^ Most likely it just isn't stitched together properly. The closer you are to the subject and the more pictures you take, I've found the more room for error when the photos are stitched together.

is there a way to automate a fix to this in MICE or photoshop or would I need to stitch it together manually?

I thought that it may have been an issue with the lens profile overexposing corners, but when I used unedited files it did the same thing.

What I always do is do the lens profile just in case, but when I export it and stitch it together in CS5 I usually never have a problem. When I first started out doing Brenizers I could never get it right but after a while when I learned that you needed to overlap ~50% to get a perfect brenizer and just be on the safe side.

Also I've tried brenizers with 35mm, 50mm, 85mm and only the 85mm provided virtually no distortion. It helps to have a distance between the subject and you as well so it doesn't appear as distorted.

drz, looks like you did a pretty good job to me. The bokeh issue is probably as mentioned above, just a stitching imperfection combined with the fact that it's a kinda busy background. Stitching a busy/blurry background is probably tough for any software program. The important thing is that you have the process down and can likely/hopefully pull it off when you go to do it on a more exciting/interesting subject.

First attempt ever! It did not go as smoothly as I hoped, but I think I learned a lot about how to do it in the future.

I finally got around to giving this style a try. This was from 19 pictures adjusted in LR and clone stamped in PS.

These are my first attempts at this technique, from last year, I've only been able to stitch them since yesterday with Autopano Giga though. Photoshop couldn't cope with either of these, neither could Hugin or PT Gui Pro. Must have been too blurry at the left and right for them to match up.

Now that I've waded through this thread, it becomes apparent that what's missing from mine is the longer focal length. I'll use my 90mm Tamron f/2.8 from now on then, unfortunately I don't have anything long that's any quicker.
