    Here are my first few attempts of the Brenizer Method!

    As I don't have a wide angle prime like the 14/2.8.. I tried the Brenizer Method and I kind of like it (?)

    Feedback would be greatly appreciated, thanks :)

    Looks PERFECT to me! This technique is extremely difficult to pull off. How many shots did you do per image?

    Really cool. I had never heard of this method (shame on me) but it delivers intriguing results.
    Which lens/cam did you use?

    Thanks, I used about 10 images, but forgot that the online tutorial said to use normal quality JPEGs instead of the best quality, so my finished files where over 250 megabits each.. :eek:

    Used the X-PRo1+ 35/1.4 shot wide open.

    You should try it out! :)

    I tried it a few times with my 5DII and 135mm lens - manual exposure and focus on the subject, took pictures in a circular pattern starting from the person's face. Loaded them into photoshop and damn near set my laptop on fire :)

    My results were no where good as yours. I will give it a spin again someday and see how it goes.

    hat second one looks more Brenizer-ish, but they're both very nice. And you definitely want to use the smaller files......or your computer will hate you.
