The other day I came across this ferocious looking Mercedes Benz and did a Brenizer type shot of it.
The Brenizer method is called so after Ryan Brenizer, an acknowledged wedding photographer from New York, who developed this cross between the panoramic stitch technique and the shallow depth of field of portrait photography. The result is a wide angle portrait where the subject really stands out from the background in a very characteristic way, unlike what you would get with a wide angle lens.
In this particular case the focus was set for the emblem of the car, shooting with an aperture of f/1.4 for that shallow depth of field, and I then took 9 photos which I went on to stitch in PhotoShop.
I am quite happy with the result and it is definitely a technique I am going to use the next time I shoot a wedding couple or portrait.
