[QUOTE=Killuah;35413675]Could you explain?

[QUOTE=Trogdon;35414511]well you are stitching pictures together, which is simulating the idea of your sensor being bigger and capturing more space. i can't really think of a different way to explain it. it's like your sensor is bigger pretty much [url]http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/digital-camera-sensor-size.htm[/url][/QUOTE] But that's not it at all. One of the factor for bokeh/dof is the aperture/sensor ratio. That's not changing at all. I think the point of it is that the longer the focal length, the shallower the DOF and thus the "bigger" the bokeh. So the stiching is used because increasing focal length by zooming forces you to take smaller portions of the scene because you can't change your distance to the scene. Alternatively to brenizer you could just zoom in to the max and then walk back far enough to get the same frame. Edit: Rethinking it, increasing sensor seize is the same as zooming in.
No, that's it exactly. Go shoot some medium format and come back when you have learned enough to realize we know more about what we're talking about than you do. Stitching is effectively increasing the sensor size, period. [editline]April 3rd 2012[/editline] [quote]Edit: Rethinking it, increasing sensor seize is the same as zooming in.[/quote] 1. Increasing sensor size is the "same as" [more like] zooming [i]out[/i]. 2. No. Again, shoot medium format and come back when you actually have experience with different 'sensor' sizes. [sub]I can't believe you actually thought you were in a position to tell us we don't understand photography.[/sub] The idea behind extracting 'more bokeh' from stitching/larger sensors, is that you maintain the lack of DOF from a longer lens but with a wider field of view.
[QUOTE=Killuah;35416521]Edit: Rethinking it, increasing sensor seize is the same as zooming in.[/QUOTE] no, it's not
Ah well what do I know. Was trying to understand the workings. Got that wrong. Have a guy breathing fire.

[QUOTE=Killuah;35416521]I think the point of it is that the longer the focal length, the shallower the DOF and thus the "bigger" the bokeh.[/QUOTE] The rest is already been addressed but this wasn't so learn some more. DoF does not decrease with a longer focal length. If you shoot at the same aperture the DoF will be the same, what you are talking about is compression which makes it look like you have more blur on a longer lens. Scroll down to "Background blur" and read / look at the images. EDIT: Forgot the link duh. [url=http://toothwalker.org/optics/dof.html]Click me![/url]

When you have a telephoto lens the depth of field stays the same (assuming similar focal point, aperture, etc.), but it magnifies the whole frame. It basically makes it so that the distance between foreground and background is amplified in the same way the actual subject is enlarged, leading to a "shallower" depth of field. So in reality the depth of field doesn't change, but the distance between objects change. Light physics is awesome.

Photography is as much a documentative process as it is an art medium

He put thought into them, it's not like they are bad pictures. They show us stuff that he saw at the museum. Can't really do much else with it. And I'm pretty sure most photography is fine, you don't have to pull semantics on it.

Oh and you don't need permission in a public space, at least not in the UK. I actually plan on going away to take some photos, because it's really not fun taking photos of things that I've seen a thousand times before, but there are other places I haven't really been to which might be interesting. For example I plan on taking photos when I go to the next steam rally which is about 50km away from me. I really love steam engines and find them very interesting in the way they function, so this is definitely something I'd enjoy. Another idea I had was to go to the peak district, one of the most untouched regions in the UK where there is plenty of wild life and foliage, another one of my favourite things to photograph. And then there's the really interesting one, I'm probably going to end up going somewhere in europe with my friend in the summer, which means there's going to be a load of interesting things that I've probably never seen before in my life.
