Alone together

This is one of those pictures that even my large-size blog format doesn’t really do justice — the original is about 150 megapixels.

I can’t post the full set without permission due to extreme fabulousness, but I will ask nicely, because this was a fantastic wedding day.

Brenizer method and flash composite. Because why not.

Camera: Nikon D3s
Lens: 36-image “Brenizer method” panorama with the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 (equivalent of 23mm f/0.38 according to Brett’s calculator)

    To start the pic is awesome and second incredible that you could do a flash bokeh panorama!

  • sam hurd

    really really love the balance of ambient to flash…

  • Emily Porter

    Love this…. Even though I’m on my phone & I’m sure that does this even less justice…. Gorgeous all the same.

  • Sully

    Sam said exactly what I was thinking. Incredible balance and very soft. Fantastic image

  • Brett Symes

    stunning in every way. I love the boldness of having the couple in the centre of the image, it gives the image such strength. Some beautiful honey coloured light in there as well which provides just that little touch of warmth that lifts the picture.

    Many many congrats, would love to see the other pictures.


  • Ian Kreidich

    Nice. I did notice there are about six dark lines in the sky that could be blended in better. Probably not as noticeable when the photo is larger.

  • alex ho

    very nice!

  • Cliff Cooper

    this is awesome!

  • Matthew Pedi

    So I’ve seen all the tutorials on the Brenzier Method, how do you do it with a flash composite?

  • Valerio Pardi


  • Ash Afie

    Simply magical!

  • Shanker Kaura

    Stunning. Your work is inspirational.

  • Giovanni Logrono

    Too amazing!

  • Albert Palmer

    Aw wow – very powerful!

  • Brandyn Fidel

    I would imagine…he started off shooting the couple (whose was lit a litepanel?) once photos creating the couple are done he removed his assistant from the frame and continued with the background and foreground.

  • Holly

    This is gorgeous, Ryan.

  • Alan Langley

    What a fabulous picture – the way the light catches the couple is stunning.

  • Dennis Pike

    this is insanely awesome. I am curious how a brenizer method AND flash composite work together. How do you manage to shoot that?

  • Jerzy Modrak

    Love the format. And the lighting as well as the light balance are so suble here!

  • Beth Salamone

    I might be prejudiced being mother of the bride, but these photos are just spectacular.

  • Anton Chia

    Love the Brenizer MethodS combined, flash and bokeh panorama-composite.
