Lifeng at Work

Twenty-five image bokeh panorama shot at the office today.

I’m learning a lot about the process of creating these. The 90mm lens I’m using seems to be a bit long and a bit slow. It’s not easy to get good coverage without taking a lot of shots. The depth of field is not shallow enough with the 2.0 lens. The background would be easier to work with if it was further out of focus. It also seems like more natural backgrounds – plants, trees, etc. would make things much easier due to their randomness.

More to come. Need to practice.

To really see the effect of this technique, you need to see the image at its full-resolution.

Be Smart – Try Again

I noticed that my photo stitching software was a couple versions behind, so I downloaded the most recent version and rendered the Smart pano again.

Halloween Photo Booth

I’m getting better and better results from the booth. Not just because of tweaks to the hardware, but also due to the fact that my audience at work knows how to get better pictures out of it. (Get closer! Lean in a bit!) And although I can fit 10 or 12 people in the booth, I’m in love with solo shots.

I have two more tweaks in mind for the next time I set up the boof. A second camera remote will allow me to take additional pictures, and a little music will put my subjects more into the mood. Stay tuned for an even better booth!


Interns!

I decided not to these in a more casual setting than my more formal headshots. These were taken handheld with my Fuji X100 and a Nikon SB 800 flash.

I wanted a bit of variety, so I shot them in different locations around he office.

Thermofisher Ad

Well, we gave up on the Lombard Street idea. I thought it was an impossible shot, and it turned out I was right about that. So, we opted for another iconic Bay Area view.

What I like most is that this piece will be printed 6 x 4 FEET in size, and hung around Thermofisher offices world-wide.
