| p.1 #20 · Fake Tilt Shift vs Real Tilt Shift |
I TOTALLY disagree....i don't think it's overused......it's def not played out like certain things.....selective color, VSCO, heavy vignettes....none of that takes talent and skill.....i think when T/S is done correctly, and used sparingly, it's awesome....to me, i think any photographer who owns a t/s lens, and knows how to use it properly, that says t/s is "played out", is trying to spread the word to everyone else to STOP using it, so they can CONTINUE using it themselves, and not be part of the "fad"....
BTW, i dont own a T/S lens...
Using a T/S lens in a truly creative way takes skill. Using a T/S the way 99% of the wedding photographers use it takes at most Live View or maybe Focus Bracketing, or luck.
For the record I DID own a T/S lens but haven't owned one in over a year.
And yes I could point to real life photos taken by photographers I totally respect that imNSHo are good but would have been A LOT better if shot with a straight 50 rather than a tilted 45 TSE.
As to the whole VSCO etc. being "overly played out" ... the problem I have with the T/S fad is that unlike processing fads the result is IRREVERSIBLE.... whereas processing choices can usually be tempered if needed and many photographers retain a neutral copy rather than just the highly processed one. Of course some uses of the lens are worse than others... the one Limon posted above for instance is unobnoxious ... most of the time the result isn't.
