Check out what lenses I don't use anymore – because I can make any of them a wide angle 😛 – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVKI-gf8ZBQ&t Reply David Penner says: October 31, 2018 at 2:04 pm For people thinking this is the brenizer method it's not. This is just a Pano. Brenizer method is a shallow depth of field Pano. Also one thing to watch out for is parallax issues when just doing this handheld. Most of the time it's fine but the proper way to do it is with a nodal slider and a Pano head. You bring the camera back so the entrance pupil of the lens is pivoting around the same point. A nice advantage to this is you can in theory do multiple exposures and everything will line up perfectly.

(Your personal opinion!) love the vids and keep making more quick tutorials like this!! Reply Joswavy says: November 1, 2018 at 6:39 am Awesome tip man! Although I wish I could use this for my portrait work 😕it's possible but it's gonna be super hard haha Reply Lucas Guanes says: November 1, 2018 at 7:26 am This is a great technique. It's worth adding that you can achieve a wide angle-look with shallow depth of fiend if you use a tight lens like a 50mm 1.8 and stitch together some photos. You couldn't get this look with any lens. Also known as Brenizer method Reply Dylan Tazzioli says: November 1, 2018 at 7:29 am Is there a way to do this for video? 😜 Reply Sync And Post says: November 1, 2018 at 8:02 am Ok. Now that I am done getting distracted by your wiggling shoulders, I am going to watch this video again and listen to you talk about Making any lens a wide angle lens. 😛 Reply Max Gen says: November 1, 2018 at 8:40 am Did you realize Chris often shakes his body Reply leolet leolet says: November 1, 2018 at 8:59 am Mariah Carey haircut Reply Manjil KC says: November 1, 2018 at 9:34 am Photo 1, photo 2 , 4 to 3, 44, 45, 46 😂😂😂 Reply Ruben Silva says: November 1, 2018 at 9:45 am Isn't this the Brenizer method ?🤔 Reply Mr Artistry says: November 1, 2018 at 10:13 am Hey Chris! I just found your channel and I love it! You make great videos and photos. Can you make a video about JPG/RAW and if photographing in JPG make sense? Reply ItsLarryG says: November 1, 2018 at 10:29 am I have to try this! That’s freakin awesome! Reply Ewan McIntyre says: November 1, 2018 at 12:32 pm You and Tony Northrup made the same video on the same day which is pretty funny Reply The Inventar says: November 1, 2018 at 1:40 pm Why you are wiggling your shoulder like a chick in the club?😅 Reply Lyle Stavast says: November 1, 2018 at 2:07 pm You can join them in PS alone as well via the File > Automate > Photomerge option. The benefit of going this route when you're comfortable with your shooting technique, is you can selectively make fine adjustments on misaligned / blurred details by painting on the layer masks which show/block things from different shots. Nice vid ! Reply Travis Stevens says: November 1, 2018 at 2:20 pm Lmao. The Geraldine part made me click like. Just wish this was for video.

Reply Diego Martinez says: November 1, 2018 at 5:19 pm Chris, you just changed my life with this video! (Head Exploding Emoji) Thanks dude – Always looking forward to learning from you and the #DopeSquad Reply Patrick L says: November 1, 2018 at 5:20 pm I'm using that trick also with my A7R3 and the 55 mm. Problem at the end is the monster size of panel ! Last shooting was with 12 images, and LR was not able to process it. Microsoft ICE has done the job in few minutes on a Core I5, so keep this alternative also for big sensors . Reply Rif A.R says: November 1, 2018 at 6:06 pm Great tip! Will definitely try it out Reply Lyle DeFree says: November 1, 2018 at 6:57 pm Awesome info Chris, super excited to try this out, as I always wanted to have a nice wide angle shot with my 18-135mm lens!! Reply First Name Last Name says: November 1, 2018 at 7:08 pm You should do a hair tutorial. Seriously thanks for sharing!

I’d do this but the latest Lightroom doesn’t offer panorama merge 🙁 Reply Sergio Fernandez says: November 2, 2018 at 11:45 am Great tutorial my bru! Short, sweet, and to the point Reply Kit Bentley says: November 2, 2018 at 1:05 pm Always pano landscapes, maximum resolution XD Reply Deniz Kendirci says: November 2, 2018 at 4:58 pm great vid, great tip, thanks very much.i think it's like brenizer method minus the shallow depth of field.maybe for a wider angle landscape shot? Reply Cesar Marino says: November 2, 2018 at 11:32 pm why does he move like if he had tits? Reply Eunji Kim says: November 3, 2018 at 5:43 am I AM SHOOK Reply OFGW says: November 3, 2018 at 11:17 am Soooooo your special technique was a pano? With the exception of using Lightroom, a technique photographers have been doing since the 1840s. Having a little trouble coming up with original content? Reply Augustin Collie says: November 3, 2018 at 2:05 pm Great hack, Chris! Thank you! Also, that whispering sequence made me laugh so much in my work day, Thanks again! Keep it up you're awesome !! Reply emir canlas says: November 3, 2018 at 2:53 pm Will definitely use this! Thanks Chrisss! Reply mc daddy says: November 3, 2018 at 3:19 pm i tried that method couple of times with my 55mm and my 42mp A7rii and i was amazed with the detail and the size of final merged photo was more than 1GB..the Lightroom almost choked and took almost 10mins to open the photo. Its a good trick if you want a wall-size print. Reply itsMido2 says: November 3, 2018 at 7:40 pm You're fucking gorgeous! Reply Comrade Stalin says: November 4, 2018 at 1:09 am It’s easier with a tripod, better with a panorama tripod and even better with a Ronin S I’ve done this with my Mavic Pro as well, ended up with 50mp and 60mp photos XD who even needs to buy a Hasselblad for 50mp Reply Jae Lew says: November 4, 2018 at 2:34 am How would this method work for long exposure shots at night, it would only work shooting still subjects correct? Reply Andrej Konič says: November 4, 2018 at 9:15 am But for this type of photo you need a still object🤔wouldnt be a moving object blurry? Reply Michael Spence says: November 4, 2018 at 9:50 am whoa!!! THank you for this!! awesome!! Reply Patric Stahl says: November 4, 2018 at 2:17 pm Is there any photographer that doesn't have back pain issues? 😉 A good advice for the stitched portraits is to try and keep the camera horizontal for all images you want to stitch, sometimes if you'll angle the camera up, down etc it can distort the image a bit weirdly (if that's even a word).. strangely.. 🙂 Reply retmon duli says: November 4, 2018 at 5:15 pm good idea Reply Martin Ivanov says: November 5, 2018 at 4:59 am For a Pro photographer just to discover this as an option…now…. not really sure how to feel about this 😀 guess that's what happens when you can afford all the gear you need. Reply Michelle Cox Photography says: November 5, 2018 at 6:06 am Great idea!! Thanks for the tips! Reply Milana Sobhi says: November 5, 2018 at 1:28 pm It's called the Brenizer method! There are programs that actually run the Pano much faster than Lightroom. Doing it in Lightroom makes you want to chew off your left arm #justsayin 😂 Reply Reuben Gray - Craft Beer and Photos says: November 5, 2018 at 1:51 pm A technique I use on my phone (Galaxy S8) is to shoot a portrait mode panorama left or right until I get an approximate 3:2 Landscape version of the shot. This gives me a wide angle landscape shot that's super high resolution versus taking the shot as a normal landscape. It works really well in small rooms to fit everything in. Reply JCINE Williams says: November 5, 2018 at 2:14 pm Pretty neat. Too bad can't do this with video. Still gotta get a wide for that. Btw I dont have Lr. But I wonder can this be achieved using Davinci Resolve 15 (newbie in the game) ? Reply Rob Dunbar says: November 5, 2018 at 6:56 pm I actually use this technique what a lot! I made a massive 28 stitched photo of Pittsburgh skyline. The megapixel count is insane!

Reply Dalton Forman says: November 7, 2018 at 7:03 am Just used my Sigma 24-105 to shoot a couple different "wide" shots and the first couple edits have come out fantastically! thanks for the tip, So glad I dont need to go buy a wide lens to get these great shots! Reply Zoya Khan says: November 8, 2018 at 6:14 am Please please give me one Lens please Reply Choco Later says: November 8, 2018 at 7:14 am This technique is very good for travel photographers that wants to get something large but getting too far is not an option. Posting some of these pictures on my instagram ''pete_the_pan''. Reply Adiera says: November 9, 2018 at 3:45 pm I think I have a different Lr because I have been looking for this merge feature for a while now and I don't see it on mine.

But i have a qustion : i'm a concert photographer, but currently don't have any wide angle lenses, sooo could this option work in such situation as well or it's a fail, (mostly cos i need to react fast while shooting)? Reply Luigi B says: November 27, 2018 at 9:08 pm Have you noticed that you wiggle à lot to emphasize ? Reply MA Visuals says: November 29, 2018 at 3:41 pm Minute 2:47 *mind blows up 🤯.

I'm pretty sure I was shooting in manual focus, I shot nine shots as you described. Thoughts? Thanks! Reply Riat Ramadani says: February 13, 2019 at 4:29 pm Hey Curt Cobain!
