Yesterday’s Topic: Traveling With Photography Gear
I’m working on a piece for Digital Photography School about tilt-shift lenses, among other things. In doing some playing…errr…research today I found a good solid example of how they can be used. Here then is a quick rundown of four sample images. The images are shot with a Canon 7D and a Canon Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II Tilt-Shift lens as well as a Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens (the first picture only). Click on an image for larger version.
Tilt shift lenses can be a lot of fun and very helpful in architectural photography. If I wanted to refine this shot, I’d shoot section and adjust my angle so focus is achieved across the entire plane, side to side. As it stands, the last image has the straightest lines and is a better representation of the scene than the first. I’ll be playing around more with this lens and a full write-up will appear on DPS.
And that’s it for the days for now!
