This is stitched from around 60 2MP jpegs taken with the M80 f/2 wide open.
When the effect comes across even when the image is reproduced at this small size, you know it works!

*chants arcane words over the thread*

I've been intrigued with this method myself, and have taken a few stabs at it. I pulled off an honest to goodness people-portrait, but can't share until I ask if I can (its of a friend's kid).

I did manage this one, though for my Single In this month...




And from my last attempt some years back. Horizon is off, but I was going for the effect, not technical perfection.

These are cross-posted to the Takumar thread. They were done with the SMC 105mm f/2.8, wide open, the first time I've used this lens for this kind of photography. It's not bad, but I think I prefer the M 85/2.

The first is made up of 81 images and comes to a total of 41.5MP. The wall has come out a bit bad on the left as the program has struggled to align the individual photos into the whole. This can happen when an area is too out of focus for the pattern recognition to function properly. I think it's a good idea to avoid too much out-of-focus area in front of the main subject.

The second photo is made up of only 49 images and is a total of 25.6MP.

All my previous bokeh panos were done for the sake of doing bokeh panos. This one I did because I thought it would suit the subject.




SMC Pentax 1:1.2 50mm, 3 horizontal rows with camera in portrait orientation. I took 49 exposures but had extras on the bottom rows (I'm still learning how to shoot these efficiently), and cropped the final result a bit more.

It took me a while to work out what the photo was of - it might be easier in colour?. I've never done one of these with the lens focused (almost) to infinity and all the bokeh in the foreground.

It is a little hard to read, although I don't mind that. But here's the color version:

I like the colour version more - it's easier to understand what's in the photo and the colours themselves are very good.

This one didn't quit turn out with the pop. I think I should have put the whole fountain (not just the center/top) into focus? Or maybe just the limitation of this big of a view. Or not close enough... (Details are on the flickr page if interested)

Only just discovered this thread! Ive shot a fair few of these over time

Here are a couple I took this morning, both with K-5II and Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 APO EX DG HSM II, neither are extreme on the narrow DOF, but I was attempting to go for the longer FL compression of the background more so than narrow DOF

This didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped, I should have included more sky, even if it is washed out. Anyway, I used the M 85mm f/2, wide open, with the camera set on jpeg-only 2MP files. Cross-posted to the "M" thread.

Looks good to me johnathan. As you said, a little more up top would be good. Maybe a little less on the bottom too and crop a bit off the right so the in focus object is not so central. Well exposed and focused though. Interesting subject, I'll have to remember it next time I'm at an orchard or somewhere with regularly spaced items

I did a series of Brenizers when I was in Seville recently, using my usual M 85mm f/2. I'm not entirely happy with how they came out, I'm perhaps aiming for objects that are too big so don't demonstrate such shallow DoF in the end picture. There's also a lot of blown-out sky in all three.

The first two are from the virtually abandoned Expo '92 area. If there weren't so many locked gates, I think I could spend days wandering around photographing the urban decay.

I quite like them, I think perhaps the subjects are too central in the images, maybe play around with final cropping a little, see what you can come up with that is a little different
