It is actually a mosaic of about 22 photos stitched together, shot with the Canon 85 1.8 lens on a full frame 5d mk2.

Each photo was shot at F3.5 and then stitched together.

*Why in the name of Zeus would you do that?

Well, because its cool.

*Whats so cool about it?

A few things-

first off, a seemingly wide shot photo becomes super-detailed, since each “tile” has the full pixel power of the full frame camera.

Second, the optical effect makes it seem like it was shot with a wide lens with an aperture of about 0.7, a lens only Stanley Kubrick had.

*So The guy had to lay there until you were done? how long did it take?

Yes, he is known as a hero in certain parts of the world. it was cold, so he held a heating bottle. He was there for about twenty minutes, before he could move again.

The “Bubbles” were a Decorative ‘Ball’ I bought at a ‘bed bath and beyond’ type store. they have dots on them.

The Biggest Advantage of this kind of shot, is that when it is enlarged and hung on a wall, The detail really shows and it looks  beautiful.

I really like the way it came out!

A big thanks to Dvir, Sivan Moran and Itai for helping to make this happen!
