“I’ve wanted to try this for a while: a ‘One Light, Levitating, Brenizer, Selfie’:) I took it standing on a chair in the forest at 85mm, f2.2, 1/50 at ISO 800 with a 5DmkII. It’s a Brenizer made up of 12 shots total to give me the wide angle with a shallow depth of field (if you want to find out how to do a Brenizer check out my blog: http://www.seantuckerphotography.co.uk/blog/2013/04/bokeh-panorama.html). I took the center shot on a tripod and then stepped out, removed the light and chair, and took the camera off the tripod to fill in the remaining shots to make up the rest of the images.”- Sean Tucker
Strobist info: The centre shot is lit with a speedlight on my left, on a light stand with a 1m softlighter (silver umbrella with diffusion panel) at 45/45 degrees. Power was set at minimum to match low ambient light.
A bit technical but lots of fun to combine a few different techniques I’ve learnt recently.
