This thread is almost dead ;_; C'mon guys!
here's a polaroid for bopie
I wish I could take pictures like that.
God damn a kit lens.
Most of those pictures look the way they do because of PP, not because of the lens.
That being said, good lighting and an interesting environment is still needed.
I should have put more space between the two sentences so you guys got the joke.
Was flickr searching for places in Scotland.
Found this, thought it was pretty spectacular, Ben Lomond.
Mountain in BC, photographer didn't say which.
I love landscape pictures with people in them.
I did not expect this to double post.
the main video you posted though is pretty catchy and I don't care so much about words as everything melds together
yet another 5D mkii photo that i thought was film
bokeh worms on the ground, neat
Jordan Voth is the man. He almost makes me want to trade in the 85 for a 35.
Here is a more diverse and realistic representation of what the 5D2 pumps out. Honestly, you could take most of those pictures with any DSLR. The only real characteristic of the 5D looking like film, is the field of view from the sensor size. I've seen plenty of stuff from the D700 that looks the same as the 5D, and I've seen pictures from entry level crop SLR's that that get closer to film than a lot of the stuff out there.

It's hard to find examples that demonstrate my point exactly, but these should do to show that there isn't some magical calibration in the 5D that causes that 'filmy' aesthetic.
haha i feel bad, no i mean i know that and thanks for them excellent examples too i enjoyed them a lot. But i mean the only photos I've seen which have confused me were the 5D. I haven't had much experience with in depth digital photo processing yet so i'm a little naive to the subject.
golden hour, city scale
out in chicago my favorite time of the day has GOT to be the morning because of all of the ambient light slowly pouring down into the shadows like that, and the nice open traffic/lack of crowds. The evening is just a nightmare and you're focused more on not getting run over by a taxi on the sidewalk.
Maybe one for you Roll_
Don't know the source...
it's amazing how much light the camera picked up from the headlights
was browsing 500px and some images melded together in my brain for a few seconds and confused the hell out of me
~DUH!~ It's called the Brenizer method. I completely forgot reading about that awhile back.
But yeah it's a pretty established thing. My interest in it didn't peak until now, seeing Brad Wagner's stuff (above pictures).
so, bokeh panoramas/large views with the majority being background/foreground and sharp focus on the subject?
like, super weird
I did several multi-shot panoramas during my mini photo gig today with the intent of trying to stitch them into huuuge bokeh pieces with the guy right at the end
also because all I had on me was my 50 and 35 and it was too friggin' cold to swap lenses half the time anyways. :I
To summarize this article;
You take something like this,
Then take a bunch of shots while staying in place, holding the same focus and exposure to scan and later stitch together, to get this:
I got lucky and I've managed to scrape a small one together from random outtakes from yesterday as proof of concept.
I used these 3...
To get this.
I can't be assed to deal with (let alone process) the fullsize RAW's right now, so I just used re-sized jpg's sooc. I'll have to give it a proper go sometime soon, and shoot deliberately for this technique.
oh i should try my camera's stich panorama to do that. i figured out some nifty things with that thing.
oh i could also totally take Panoramic portraits :0
