    I really seems to be a tiny toy booth. Impressive light.

    wow, the short depth of field here is amazing,

    what aperture did you use? (f/1.8?)

    the short depth of field almost gives it that "miniature faking" look to it.

    Thanks all.

    The trick to this is that it's made up of 18 separate frames merged together in PS like a panorama. By using a telephoto lens wide open at close range you end up with a wide field of view and an 'impossible' depth of field.

    I've used this technique before (http://mute.rigent.com/index.php?ladat=2009-08-04) but never with so many frames. It can work pretty well to give you the narrow depth of field of a much larger format.

    how is the technique called?

    Davide, the idea of combining exposures to balance exposure of DoF is an old one but combining so many (I've seen people do 60 or more!) specifically to get this depth of field look has popped up recently. I saw someone on flickr call it the 'benzier method' or similar and it's popular amongst wedding photographers.

    Brilliant. It just pops.

    Simply love the DoF you achieved by using that technique. Looking forward to try it very soon.

    And thank you for the shot of the day mention. :-)

    Miles, Ive seen you use different techniques for this effect but this one is the best. Have to say Ive never tried it but looking forward to giving one of my shots the "Mute Effect." Dont care what others call it, Im calling it the Mute Effect.
