You dream of a high end full frame DSLR or, even better, a medium format camera? You can achieve this result thanks to the Brenizer method by using merely your own camera and Autopano Pro/Giga.
Ryan Brenizer is a wedding photographer, inventor of the same named method, which consists in taking multiple pictures of a subject with a “long focal” (above 100 mm) and stitch them with Autopano to get large frame with a shallow deep of field. This is what a lot of photographers are looking for, especially in portrait photography, and it can also add an artistic touch to your landscape pictures.
Here is a comparison between a classic picture, taken in one shot, and the same scene from the same point of view, captured using the Brenizer method:
What are the advantages of the Brenizer Method?
- Final result looks like a picture taken with a very large sensor and/or a very fast lens (aperture<f/1)
- Very high resolution pictures
- Wide field of view with shallow deep of field
- Beautiful Bokeh (depending on your lens diaphragm)
