p.1 #1 · "Near-To-Far" DOF w/tilt


Here's an article I read up on last night that started to make a "little" sense to me as to what is going on with tilt.

http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/tilt-shift-lenses2.htm

Here is today's attempt to put it into practice. IIRC this was about 18-20 inches away from the "plane of focus" (sign) with about 3-4 degress of tilt. It also has a few millimeters of shift being used (darn, forgot my ladder). Even a step stool would have been nice, but the shift saved the day in that regard.

Shot @ only f5.6

pretty amazing for 5.6.
Did you buy the lens with architectural shots in mind?

Thanks Scott.

I bought the lens with sorta architecture in mind, sorta for landscape max DOF, sorta always wanted to learn tilt, sorta ... YIKES, it is an ultra-sharp WA lens with essentially no aberrations/distortion and very, very low vignetting.

Yes, to all of the above.

Sounds cool. That is a lot of DOF, crazy.

Yep. You can do amazing corrections and set interesting planes of focus with it.

What is going on with the strange magenta cast on the wall above the sign Kent?

Oh, that was probably my Kodak SLR/c applying its automated variable color correction compensation (green/magenta) that I forget the name for. It rears its head occasionally with UWA (and tilt/shift) and I missed it as this was only a "test shot" as I was learning to use tilt. No worries ... it was ALL camera, I get it with other UWA's against neutral areas @ the edges sometimes. It is very much a Kodak SLR/c thing and the OEM software has slider adjustments ... but I mostly process with PS these days, so I didn't put it through the Kodak's processing to offset what the camera applied.

Again ... this is a Kodak SLR/C thing only. The lens is incredibly well corrected.

+1 on ultra sharp. I love both my TSE lenses.

I do have trouble focusing though when I have to use live view. It is sorta ok for near stuff but worthless for infinity on a 1DS-mk3 and my eyes. I am using the focus ring now for infinity and live view for tilt.

I have not used it much for side tilts as in this example. Very nice job here.
