I found out about this new technique the other day, basically in short what you do is use a telescopic lens on a really wide aperture to create a really shallow depth of field behind your subject, then you take a number of photos, stitch them all together and it creates a picture which is of the wider angle lens style but with a shallow depth of field which you can only achieve with a telescopic lens. The results you can get are awesome.

Some pictures I have seen give the look of the subject being 3D and in some ways fake looking, which is really smart - if you like that thing.

Here is a video of Ryan Brenizer explaining how to do it - its easier to understand in the video - and also theres link to his website which show it off a bit more with humans rather than cars.

So I wanted to try it quickly, I parked my car in an industrial estate which was all private property - security kicked me out after about 10mins, so I had to rush to get the picture I wanted, which is a bit annoying because the car isn't fully in focus because I focused on the front of the car and didn't check the rear of the car before I started snapping.

This picture is made up of about 15-20 pictures. I did crop it too so I could get a panorama feel to it.

I will be going out at some point again and re-doing it to try and get a better effect - basically for the background to be even more out of focus... but for a rushed first attempt to get the feel of it all, I'm kinda pleased with it.

I'll update with more pictures when I take some, hopefully they will come out better :)

Tecccchnically i know its not a brenizer type photo. it was shot with a 35mm/F1.8 lens that pretty much lives on my camera, with alot of the background cropped to make it internet friendly. to be honest i found the video a bit confused. trying to achieve the effect of a wide angle with a telephoto? perhaps im not looking at it with the right mindset.

In a way thats basically what it is, but it gives the picture a different feel and look.

But if you look at the link under the video, you'd never get the same results of those pictures with a wide angle lens because you'd have to go really close to the subject to get them in focus with the background out of focus and you'd miss out loads of detail, plus it would look wide angle too.

Its kinda of hard to get the perfect effect unless you have the right equipment. I have had a number of goes with it and sometimes photoshop doesnt like stitching the pictures together for some reason, something to do with CS4 I think as a number of people had problems with it, and I couldn't even get it to do it on CS4 because of a bug in the program that no one has found a way around yet, plus its only been of my car too which can be rather hard to get the full effect of.
