Thanks all! Used 85L on a 5Dc on that one, around 30+ shots.

Another from the same session:

So I have a question about the actually shooting technique involved with this shot. I tried this method on 2 of my friends and it came out really distorted (think slender man). I started with a shot that was from about chest up and then worked my way down and around from the same perspective (thinking this might be the issue)...so I guess my question is if I were to start off from a shot where only half of the body is in the shot should I be slowly squatting as opposed to tilting the camera downward?

I started from middle, Left, top left, top mid, top right, right, bottom right, bottom mid, bottom left. I still need to see how it works when I'm using say, more than 20-25 shots.

I've seen others post here saying to include the full subject in your first shot. So with your 85, if you can only fit their upper half, move further back until you can get their full body in the frame and then start shooting. This way, there shouldn't be any distortion in your subject.

All the photos that I've tried with this method took 2-3 frames to take the full body and I've never encountered any distortion problem. But yes taking the full body in the one frame should eliminate the distortion problem until you get more experience with the method.

Which focal length is ideal for Brenizer? Anyone tried it with longer focal, say 300mm?

^^ a lot of people recommend 85mm/tele photo range. I've personally used 35mm on FF and have had decent results.
