This photo is an amateur example of the bokeh panorama / Brenizer Method type of image. I stumbled upon this interesting type of composition a few weeks ago via the Flickr blog. The post was about the #BikeNYC group and some great bicyclist portraits by Dmitry Gudkov. I liked the look of his portraits and noticed they were tagged with the terms "bokeh panorama" and "Brenizer method." Upon some further research, I discovered a video and instructions here on Ryan Brenizer's website. I think it looks great for portraits, and could be applied to inanimate objects and city photography as well. I look forward to trying it out more in the future. My first take at it, as pictured above, was made by combining four photos.

  3. Reminds me a little of the 'tilt-shift' photos that makes a shot look like a miniature set.I'd love to see a Portland shot like that. See this link for technique: http://recedinghairline.co.uk/tutorials/fakemodel/

  4. Thanks for the comments, Meghan and Frank! I will try out a tilt-shift type of photo sometime soon, I think they are pretty neat. Maybe some of my photos from the Portland Observatory would work well with that effect.
