Office Buildings as Incredible Backgrounds

Don’t let typical backgrounds like office buildings remain typical. Certain techniques, such as the “Brenizer method” or panoramic stitch, manipulate the appearance of the background and add a unique, surreal quality to images.

Considerations for background manipulation:

  • Focal length for compression
  • Aperture for background effect
  • Expose for ambient
  • Add flash if needed
  • ND filter if needed
  • Adjust exposure/zoom/spill
  • Pano-stitch if needed
