Cemetery in Winter

Cemetery In Winter
Old tombstone at the cemetery in Västerhaninge. This scene is shot using the bokeh panorama technique. In this case that means shooting multiple photos with the 50mm lens at f 1.8, and then stitching those together to create a photo with a very narrow depth of field. More on this fun technique here.

They tell me that the ground is always 59º where the coffins are located.

I can see the point, but it is a bit too complicated for my lazy hands...

I like your composition in this one.

It's a beautiful image Steffe, but sounds like quite a complicated procedure. I just bought a lens at the camera market for my Pentax that seems to do all that in one shot, now I just have to use it.

The thing is Grace, you can't do this with one photo. The simple reason for that is that I would have had to step back ten or fifteen meters to get this scene with one shot and even using the same f-stop it would of course look different. But shooting a flat surface like I did here is probably not the best thing, A car or even a person would probably be a better alternative for the Brenizer method.
