I haven’t experimented with bokeh panorama shots in quite a while. A nice manual focus f/0.95 lens was all the inspiration I needed to have another go at this quirky method of shooting. Both of these shots are multi-panel stitches taken with the lens wide open.

I was actually going for a full length portrait for the image above. Unfortunately, the photomerge process somehow made her feet disappear into Photoshopland. This is certainly not an exact science 🙂

The Interrupting Shiba

I often set up impromptu portrait sessions with the wife so she can record the funky outfits she puts together. This is a very simple  set up, with a single Canon 600EX on a light stand shooting through an umbrella.

We’re triggering the flash with Pocket Wizards, and the transmitting unit is hotshoe’d to a brand new Panasonic GX7 I’m testing. This camera’s mechanical shutter has a native sync speed of 1/320th. Pretty handy for shooting flash portraits outdoors with your aperture wide open, in this case at f/0.95.

It wasn’t long, however, until Suki decided to walk in on our little shoot:

So as not to offend the Suki, I made sure she got a solo portrait of her own 🙂
