    This guy looks like Gizmo.

  2. J C on October 4, 2021 at 8:11 am

    so are we supposed to lock our focus and keep the focus only on the couple via manual focus?
    and the rest all blurred? or how does this work?

  3. Sakir Ahmed Laskar on October 4, 2021 at 8:11 am

    So good!!

  4. Israel Berrios on October 4, 2021 at 8:12 am

    Can you do this using a smartphone?

  5. Ashams Winnes on October 4, 2021 at 8:13 am

    I was waiting for this video from you …
    Awesome one👍🏻

  6. Phrank on October 4, 2021 at 8:13 am

    interesting. thanks for the inspiration. if your models / subject doesn’t move you can also use a panoramic head and have less trouble in the post production.

  7. Ryan Dandelion on October 4, 2021 at 8:13 am

    Excellent tutorial – detailed, informative, straight forward. Much appreciated, friend.

  8. Matthew Cheung on October 4, 2021 at 8:15 am

    Thanks bro

  9. Reggie Ballesteros on October 4, 2021 at 8:15 am

    Try this technique out! If you share it on IG and tag me, I’ll check it out and offer some feedback 🙂

  10. John Berthoty on October 4, 2021 at 8:15 am

    You overlapped some images as part of the set, which included the subjects. What if they move a little between shots ? How does LR handle the stitching? Thanks!

  11. Larry Nguyen on October 4, 2021 at 8:17 am

    Awesome explanation and beautiful photo!

  12. Alexander C on October 4, 2021 at 8:17 am

    So good! Thanks for the great vid and idea

  13. TherealRoblay on October 4, 2021 at 8:19 am

    When up I move the camera are you going back to AF to refocus again our keeping the same focus

  14. Abu Habeeb on October 4, 2021 at 8:19 am

    that is absolutely awesome. never even thought about the effect but surely have felt it and seen it. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

  15. J0V4L on October 4, 2021 at 8:22 am

    Perfect explanation my man.

  16. Mia M on October 4, 2021 at 8:24 am

  19. jorgepeterbarton on October 4, 2021 at 8:29 am

    Know any free stitching software?

  20. Goran P. on October 4, 2021 at 8:30 am

    There are a few tutorials on this technique, but this is one of the best in terms of explaining all the different factors involved and specifics of execution (like order of capture). Thank you!

  21. Максим Игоревич on October 4, 2021 at 8:32 am

    I know this simple method, but yours video reminds me it and gives me а new idea. Thanks for your work. Best wishes!

  26. adamaj on October 4, 2021 at 8:38 am

    I took my wife to the park once to try this method. Here are a few results:

    https://bit.ly/2TTtPEi
    https://bit.ly/3cLJL4q
    I didn’t spend too much time going over them and fixing them, but it’s still a cool look I think.

  27. Mike Boahen on October 4, 2021 at 8:38 am

    Great video. You just earned yourself a sub sir.

  28. o o on October 4, 2021 at 8:38 am

  32. V. H on October 4, 2021 at 8:40 am

    Hey Reggie! Thanks for putting out another solid video. You’ve become my go-to photography channel. Stay safe and healthy!

  33. Optidorf on October 4, 2021 at 8:44 am

    Great explanation! I heard about it once, but I didn’t know it was this simple. Makes me want to go out and try it immediately.

  34. Fabien Butazzi on October 4, 2021 at 8:47 am

    Great stuff again Reggie 👍🏻
    When I use the technique for commercial work though I prefer to stitch the images in Photoshop because I can better correct the issues when the file has layers (using your example, would be easier to select and fix the leaves if they were moving with the wind) or if I went through C1 imports rather than Lightroom.
    The latest update of Lightroom also added .PSB support so you can then adjust the larger file there too after the stitching.

  35. Luis Adrian Lara on October 4, 2021 at 8:49 am

    What an amazing tutorial thank you man!!! Whoever disliked this vid is an asshole

  36. Photo by TJ on October 4, 2021 at 8:51 am

  40. Michel lavallee on October 4, 2021 at 8:54 am

    Reggie like to echo what people are saying, but very well explain and short to the point. Love it well done, nice to see that in less than 8 min you explain what people will learn in more time. Keep the good work.

  41. Simón Brown on October 4, 2021 at 8:56 am

    good work Reggie! most clear impossible!!

  42. anityy on October 4, 2021 at 8:57 am

  45. Tom Hanx on October 4, 2021 at 9:03 am

    Can I use xf 35mm f1.4 for Brenizer? Or is it not long enough?

  46. Marlon Ramos on October 4, 2021 at 9:04 am

    Im so inspired!!! When I pull it off I will tag you for sure!

  47. Gwen Andersen on October 4, 2021 at 9:05 am

    Thank you so much for explaining this. I gave it my first go … on my dog, alone, in the woods today. Your video made it quite easy and I look forward to more opportunities to practice….maybe someday on humans…..

  48. B R on October 4, 2021 at 9:06 am

    Thanks Reggie, do you know if this is available in C1 as well?
