The Brenizer Method

This weekend I learned of the Brenizer Method This photographic technique creates images of very high resolution and very shallow depth of field. The resulting “bokeh panorama” simulates the look of a very large (8 x 10) format camera with your basic digital camera. Excellent!

I could not wait to try this for myself, but since my favorite model was out at the barn, the subject of my first bokeh panorama is – a garbage can.

Combining images in AutoPano Pro to produce a 'bokeh panorama'.

The trashcan panorama consists of 64 images shot with a 90mm F2.0 lens set wide open. I exposed for the trashcan and locked the focus, aperture, shutter speed and white balance. I then shot a grid of 8 x 8 images and combined the resulting images in AutoPano Pro. Great technique – very cool results.

I will certainly be trying this again once I get the fabulous 56mm f1.2 lens, because it’s extremely wide aperture will allow me to create images with a much shallower depth of field.

Kelly’s Perfect Birthday

What could be more relaxing than scooping poop with her best four-legged friends at the barn?

Happy New Year!

A little more fun with V-Ray and PhotoShop.

Let’s toast to a wonderful 2017!

Merry Christmas

In case you’re wondering, I created thedude & Kelly action figures in Cinema4D and composited them into a photograph of our fake tree with PhotoShop.

I just have to follow up with this favorite Photobooth shot of sister-in-law Jill showing her best holiday spirit.

Belize

Our first visit to Belize was a good one. We spent the first half at Blanacaneaux Lodge. (It was so wonderful, we’re already planning another visit.) For the second half, we chose a beach setting at another Coppola resort – Turtle Inn. Both were amazing in their own way, and provided excellent backdrops for the highly-rated Fuji X-T2. As you can see, my new favorite camera performed quite nicely.

If you’re a glutton for punishment, you can view way too many pictures in our Google Album from the trip.
