Either process involves Photoshop (if not another stitching or editing program). In my opinion, it's much easier to do "in-camera blurring" than in Photoshop. You don't have to bother with masking out the subject.

But again, I think the larger issue is that of compression and distortion. Those trees in the background of tmckitterick's image above will look further behind the couple and the cement post of Magnus3D's image will be distorted to look wider. Others can correct me on those points if I am wrong.

ok, very first time i've ever tried this. Shot with an 85L - this was about 50 pics, although i cropped in a bit. I guess as i'm new to it I over shot (especially as i knew i wouldn't get a chance to repeat it as my daughter was NOT happy about sitting on the damp step for too long ;) )

Beautiful. Well done. I need to take another run at this technique.

I hammered one out last weekend and MS ICE really pulls it together nicely.

My first Brenizer shot with a rented 85L. Pretty much the only lens for this method in my mind.

^I'm not sure if I see an apparent effect, Blair?

There are some awesome examples in this thread. Love your shot rampanthamster.

I had a go at this last night, I was using a 7D and a 70-200mm 2.8 @ 200mm. I think this ended up being about 60 shots.

Great shot!

I'm wondering how this was done. The leaf on the ground to the left of the subject appears to have a larger footprint than hers. Either there is some effect applied or that is some giant maple tree.

It's a giant tree:). The bricks she's standing on and leaf's laying on have the same size. Any effect/distortion that could've affected the leaf's size should've affected the bricks as well I think.

Not that surprising. Check out the size of this leaf. Just google "large leaf maple"

My first attempt on the Brenizer method, shot 9 frames with the Samyang 35mm f/1.4 at 1.4.

Good first try. With a wider focal length, you have to be careful with perspective changes. Most people will shoot the face/subject in one frame and build around it. I notice that the chin shows a little bit of a blending error. Otherwise, good job.
