The Tilt-Shift Lens (Download FAQ)
The Tilt-Shift Lens Advantage for Outdoor & Nature Photography
For us, no other other tool in our camera bags offers as many technical and creative advantages than the tilt-shift lens. What other lens allows you to correct keystoning in-camera, make seamless horizontal and vertical panoramas, create giant, megapixel monster images, alter the plane of focus for incredible apparent sharpness independent of aperture, and manufacture dreamy, blurred and miniaturized-looking images? And, best of all, every one of these techniques is created in-camera with nary a pixel altered by less capable software substitutes! If you think that’s amazing, think again because we have not even mentioned the mega-sized super powers of tilt and shift in combination! The possibilities are almost endless. In the hands of an artist, a tilt-shift lens is a superhero paintbrush! To create art you still to know how use the brush, but once you do, watch out: your creativity will be unleashed and your photography will never be the same. We promise.
This promise of increased creativity is wonderful but tilt-shift lenses are famous for befuddling their owners. They are tricky to use and many people give up on them too soon. That’s too bad because understanding these lenses is not hard if you are given good instruction. But good instruction is lacking and that is why we created this eBook. Find out everything you need to know about using a tilt-shift lens by following our step-by-step recipes. With a little practice you’ll soon step away from our starter recipes and begin creating on your own; you’ll be a master chef of the tilt-shift in no time!
