Merchant Seafarers Memorial Brenizer Method

By silversnapper1
This is a 64 image panorama of the Merchant Seafarers Memorial in Cardiff Bay, Cardiff created using the Brenizer Method...This unique sculpture is the Merchant Seafarers War Memorial in Cardiff Bay. This is a striking piece of street art situated right outside the Welsh Assembly Building, Y Senedd. Cardiff Bay played a major part in the development and success of Cardiff as an exporter of coal to power the industrial age. Tiger Bay is historically one of the first multicultural ports in Great Britain and the community comes from up to 45 different nationalities. The docks were regenerated in 1999 by the creation of the Cardiff Bay Barrage

Thanks for sharing - i'd never heard of the Brenizer Method. Thats quite interesting and i love the idea of the effect it produce, even if it does require a lot of attention to detail and work.

An interesting piece. It hardly falls into the ' panoramic ' category though.
Why 64 images - why so small.?

I've googled this artwork and I see you have another version of this on ' fineartamerica '.
Prefer that version and it's bigger.! but still not ' panoramic '
Thank you Jack, Colleen and Bri. Your comments are much appreciated.

This image was shot using the Brenizer Method. Stood close to the subject and focussed on the subject with a very narrow dof (f1,8 using a 35mm f1.8 lens) This keeps the subject and anything on the plane of focus in focus and throws all of the background out of focus. Got the idea out of Practical Photography magazine May 2016 on their CD.

Thanks very much for the explanation on taking the image and the link.
It's a very interesting article and process.
Rather time consuming I would think.Smile

Taking the shots themselves only takes a short while. This was my first ever attempt at it so very much experimental. I think that maybe I could have overlapped the shots a bit more and could have got away with quite a few less but it is a busy area so I was a bit rushed. The processing on the computer took a lot longer than the shooting process and I ended up with a large file which I then cropped to about 65Mb.

I know that it will not be everyone's cup of tea but thought it was worth the challenge.
