There's a really cool photomerge technique called the Brenizer method (so named for it's inventor, wedding photographer Ryan Brenizer). The technique creates an image with an eerily shallow depth of field (read Noctilux) but....as if it were taken with a wide angle lens. The technique basically stitches a number of shots (all taken with a locked focus at the widest aperture) around a central subject and using either photoshop's own panorama algorithm or one of several really excellent specific photo-merge/stitching software out there stitches them into montage into one amazing image. The thing is TYPICALLY the best results are had with a fast medium telephoto lens (like an f1.4 85mm) and that provides enough shallow DOF. But with the unique optics of the DP2 M which seems to be capable of creating really shallow DOF at f2.8 I wondered if it would be possible to pull it off. Well...I think the results speak for themselves. A central image with DP2 M sharpness standing out from a nicely blurred background. Enjoy!
