The 35 images were then imported into Aperture for some minor post-processing such as setting a fixed white balance, adjusting exposure and some minor sharpening for all images.
The images were then exported as jpegs into a folder. The 35 jpeg images were then imported into AutopanoPro, stitched together and cropped into the final large panorama.
Below is another example taken indoors, this time a total of 25 images inside my house, taken with a 50mm lens set at f/1.4 and 1/90, AWB and focus set manually.
The images produced by this technique produce have a wonderful ethereal feel with soft bokeh and narrow depth of field which immediately draws the viewer to the focal point of choice. For photographers like Ryan Brenizer his focal point will of course be the wedding couple. So for all you wedding photographers out there this could be a great new technique to add to your portfolio of tricks and offer the bridal couple something a little special!
These two examples I tried were done very quickly but the effect is dramatic. With practice you should be able to perfect this technique and add this to your portfolio to produce large panoramic images with narrow depths of field which would not be possible with a wide angle conventional lens.
Check out Ryan’s website where he explains his technique and you can have the opportunity to see some wonderful examples of this technique.
