This is just about as extreme a “Brenizer method” pano as I’ll probably ever do, using sixty-two frames from the exotic 200mm f/2 to bring a three-dimensional feel to a nice day in Central Park. Lauren is part of the great wedding planning team at Private Receptions, so I figured I’d swing for the bleachers. More from this session coming soon, as well as a full review of the 200mm. According to Brett’s calculator, this ended up functioning like it was taken with a 60mm f/0.6 lens. The original is 150 megapixels, and you can count their eyelashes.

Jackie and Anthony had a fantastic wedding in Philadelphia, and rocked it so hard they cracked the Liberty Bell AGAIN.
Sometimes the things that makes a wedding day special aren’t what you expect. We’d all suspected a fantastic outdoor ceremony at the Hyatt Regency, with its fantastic view of the New York Skyline, but the weather did not agree with those expectations. So why did I have such a hard time narrowing down this post, wincing at every image I adored just a little bit less? Primarily Tara and Ramin themselves — fun, smart, and incredibly kind, not to mention (for the time being) my neighbors. And Tara has the sense of natural grace that wedding dress designers picture in their cloudy thought bubbles as they make their designs. And then there’s that skyline.
But it all comes down to the emotions. A lot of hankies were used that day, and there were so many deep bouts of laughter, the kind you can’t help but share in. I could fill half a wedding album with just the varied emotions of Tara and Ramin as they listened to speeches from her father, the best man, and the maid-of-honor. Congratulations, you two.
(I’m bringing back slideshows for the public until I change my mind again; in this case I’ve started to think about which images are best in layout format and which are best standing alone in a slideshow, so for the completeists just a note that there are lots of pictures that are in one but not the other, in both directions)
