San Diego Family Portraits | Golden Hill Park | Brenizer Method

Once again I stopped by the beautiful Golden Hill Park just outside of downtown San Diego for a super fun family portrait session.  This time I wanted to try and create a really nice image that my client would consider fine art.  Something that they would want to have blown up and hanging in the favorite room to show it off to their friends and family.  My clients and I shot at several difference locations around the park, in the shade, in the grass, and then I spotted them just relaxing playing with their son Xander in this little area.  I decided to attempt a bokehrama, also know as the Brenizer method.


This image is composed of 36 individual images, all shot with 85mm lens at f/1.4 (wide open).

Here’s what the single image would have looked like of just my clients.

Here’s a screen shot of PS6 after all 36 images have been merged together.

You can see how much more amazing the image looks with the elements of their surroundings and the manipulation of the depth of field.

It’s important to take the time to deliver an image to your client that they will cherish for a lifetime, and a image they just can’t get from other photographers.
