How much does the "order" of shots help LR. I.e. I have been told get one full shot of subject then start top left above move right then down then back left then down then back right... etc.

Does that help at all or am I overthinking it

Not butting in but, I have done many of these and also know people who do them. We get best results with getting the main point of interest in the first one to two shots. That way if they happen to move, it is no big deal. Then just continue around the rest of the frame you want to fill. You do not want to jump all around say like from one corner to another however.LR, photoshop, etc,,, will automatically put them in order by number. You just want to cover the entire section. Does not matter if you go left to right, right to left, up or down , etc.


I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy it!!

I got one question in mind, do you take several frames that include the subject? If so, what if the subject moves? I mean humans aren't statues. Doesn't matter how hard you try to stay still, there's going to be slight movement. Is PS smart enough to stitch the subject flawlessly?

My first gut reaction was, "that doesn't look real." But I didn't want to call anybody out unless I had the fact :). In addition to the blur incorrectly placed in some places, the photo looks like it was shot at around 70-100mm maybe (I'm still learning how to see focal length :p ). With the Brenizer we'd end up on the wide side of the focal length typically.

Looks like PS Tilt Shift Effect filter to me

I've found that it's easier to just have them move out of the frame after I took their shot. I first take a few of the subject to make sure I get the right pose or expression. Sometimes I even have them do several poses. DO try to include the whole subject though as that will give you one anchoring frame to build around.

This shot unfortunately suffers from a lack of proper posing direction. We were walking back from doing our community service when I noticed the potential in the background. So I just ask the group for a shot and they just fall together into a gaggle. :). Taking a few frames of the subject is important to make sure that you got the right pose and expression. You can even have them do several poses. As long as you're not moving and that there are not too many straight lines, PS will stitch them correctly.

So, after I finish taking several frames of the group, I then let them walk past by me, and shot the rest of the frame. Often, when you do this, the frame with the subject will be completely masked, but that is easily brushed away. The beauty is the frame with your subject is likely going to be one of your first two frames. I also combined the subject shot with the one that include the full shoulder of the guy to the right.

As you can see from the final frame, it's got potential, but needs just a bit more to push it better. :)

Also, while I shot the subjects horizontal, I shot the pano vertical as I'm more comfortable doing that. PS stitched it without skipping a beat :)

Thanks. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the editing technique. I'm a complete PS newbie. I'm hoping to get a result automatically, something like clicking Photomerge - select all photos - click OK.. and voila.. final result. If it requires manual adjustments (like masking, layering etc), I'm afraid I don't have the skills :-(, yet.

Josh Young - I'm so inspired by the way you grab a "snapshot" moment (e.g.) with friends and family, but then go on to create an outstanding image that I'd have otherwise thought only attempted with planning, time care, specialized equipment and patient models.

Brenizier results can look over posed, but your are so natural / personal / real.

Morph, PS will automatically blend and layer for you. All you have to do is brush in/ out the layer you want on top for the most part.

Here's my most ambitious stitch yet :). A 78 shot Brenizer at Partnach Gorge in Southern Germany.
5D3 with Tamron 70-200 at 85mm and 3.2

im just wondering, why did you go 85mm f3.2 when you could have gone 200mm f2.8 for a much greater depth?


The most important piece of gear you own, resides in your head and its called your brain.

Can extension tubes be used to heighten this effect?

Would this pass casual inspection as Brenizer? I faked it. What gives it away?

Will post a real one when I can master the basics.
