One more of Kelsie before things start to get really geeky around here … I’ve got some exciting stuff coming in, and that means I finally need to get around to reviewing my new secret weapon first.

Camera: Nikon D3s
Lens: 7-image “Brenizer method” panorama with the Nikon 85mm f/1.4G (equivalent of 50mm f/0.8 according to Brett’s calculator)

Stefan Hellberg - wow ryan, this is amazing. Thanks for sharing!

Jay Cassario - Amazing shot! When I seen it on Facebook it didnt even cross my mind that this was a stitched shot. I’ve never done a Brenizer method shot with this close of a comp, but Im gonna have to now, this looks awesome!

Aaron DuRall - Good lord… Those eyes. So, so entrancing. I just cannot stop staring. Yet another fabulous work of art, Ryan. Seriously, such a timeless feel!

Anthony E. Griffin - This is all kinds of crazy awesome! Well done!

Ian Abdilla - hmmm…. lovely really like others said… timeless…

Nicholas Gonzalez - In the voice of Garth from Wayne’s World: “Brenizermethod… by Ryan Brenizer. I’M NOT WORTHY! I’M NOT WORTHY!”

Elissa Rïnehart - She’s so beautiful AND can sing… I kind of want to marry her.

Roman - Ryan, Ryan, please, don’t do this – we want more Kelsie, she’s gorgeous, much more so than any camera or lens you are about to review (which is also great, don’t get me wrong). Just.. just… more. Please.

Andre Blais - Wow that’s such a gorgeous image, I love how the focus goes right to her eyes, great capture!

Fabrice Drevon - You’re technic at its climax. Very impressive on such a close portrait!

Schalk Ras - Great photo in B&W, look the golden oldies. Details in the right spot, the rest blurred away. Remind me of macro shots, we’re I try to push the DOF the other way.

Eric Uys - Really nice B&W portrait, very film noir feel. Funny enough I just stumbled upon “the Brenizer method” today, was reading an article on SLR Lounge about some portraits he had done using the Brenzier method and having been in the game for over a decade I had never heard of this method. So google found me here and it’s interesting that I had been using a similiar method for years but it involved a lot more photoshop work, where I would shoot a single frame and then capture follow up frames and just blur the focus on the lens and then mesh them in photoshop. I have been shooting people portraits in a Panorama style for years as well but never thought to do it with a zoom lens and build a panorama up, very clever :)
