brenizer method

Last weekend, I was in New York City for Ryan Brenizer’s workshop to help assist Ryan and also to hang out with the lovely Sara Byrne. We had a few minutes of downtime in Central Park and in the spirit of the workshop, I tried my first ever Brenizer Method series of photos with Sara as my model. This photo is comprised of 17 photos shot at f/1.2 with the 85L. I am… so in love with it.

I’m all kinds of smitten with this method now and will have to do these more soon. You can learn all about The Brenizer Method on his site and, for the record, he also does pretty rad workshops. AND if decide to try this and you come up with something you really love, you should enter it in this contest he’s having sponsored by B&H.

    That is a terrific sample of what the method can yield. You should submit it to the B&H contest! Out of curiosity, how far where you from Sarah? Was one frame a full body frame, or did you have to composite her with several frames?
