Canon FL 55mm f 1.2
(images are 25-40 stitched together each)
these are awesome! thank you! more like bokehramas!
Thanks! Added one more in the original post, it's insane how large these images are.. several hundred megs each until resized
I'm trying to figure out what you've actually done here.
So the wooden bench as an example, looks like roughtly a 1.5 to 2 metre long bench. It's 25-40 pictures @ f1.2.
So my question is, what's the difference between that, and taking 1 picture at F 1.2?
I'm guessing you may have taken the picture at say 1 metre distance, where as to get the entire bench in 1 shot you would need maybe 7 metre distance. The result is the focus distance would be further, resulting in a deeper DOF, which means more will be in focus.
So if my assumptions are correct, then to achieve the same DOF at 7 metres from the item, you'd need a faster lens, say... maybe an F0.4
So, does this mean a close up panorama effectively simulates a really really fast lens at regular distance?
You got it, thats exactly what I did What you end up with is a final image that can not be reproduced in one single shot. When cropped to proper framing it will leave you with a picture that looks more like a 35mm f .4 on a full frame sensor rather than something that was created with a 110mm equivalent at f 1.2
Now if my lens wouldn't make such crazy bokeh!
Interesting, this sounds like a poor man's GigaPan. But instead of high apertures and panoramic scene shots, it's a giant bokeh-fest.
You're right, just flip flopped! It's actually called the Brenizer Method. I read the article they posted last week and thought "I gotta try that!"
I seriously love that shot of the green tree and leaves, could I *download a nice copy* of it from you?
Of course ya can Kosta, it's big enough to make wallpaper out of so any size you want really. Email me at email@example.com so we can figure out all the details
Thanks for the reminder to try this "Brenizer method"....I remember seeing one of these types of shots a couple years ago and trying to put my eyeballs back in my head......soooooo cool. These are gorgeous examples....and I kinda think the funky bokeh your lens is drawing is pretty neat for these types of shots......very impressionistic....the middle one is my fave, but they're all great.
Excellent. I like them a lot.
this method also is a way to "overcome" the limitations of our sensor crop size. As using a 55mm f1.2 lens will give the same depth of field whether it be on a full frame camera or a micro four thirds camera... but the crop means you can not capture the same image on a micro four thirds camera without moving further away or using a wider lens... both which create more depth of field and lose much bokeh. So you can snap a few pics and stitch them together to recreate the depth of field and framing you get with a full frame camera
Would love the last one in a wallpaper size (i.e. 2560x1440) — fantastic shot.
I will whip something up for you after I get off work
I'm especially loving the bokeh in the benchpicture
Excellent! Very absorbing images. I would love to explore some higher resolution versions. Any chance you can upload something that's like 10k pixels across maybe?
I will have to try this technique with the Panny 20mm.
What did you use to stitch? I've only ever tried the photo stitcher built into Photoshop.
It's a shame about the horrible bokeh on the first one, but the third one is very cool indeed....
Great idea! The last one (the green) is truly awesome. Well seen!
