p.1 #1 · Perspective Control Lenses. Which one for wedding


I am looking to possibly add a Perspective Control Lens to my bag, and am wondering which focal length people here are using. I tried a search on this topic with a bunch of different terms, but I couldn't find anything, so I am sorry if this topic has been done before.

I know there are a lot of folks who don't really like the look of the shots they produce, and I certainly understand that. I also understand that I can do this to some degree in Photoshop. I get that, but I am looking for it to be done in camera.

Thanks for any help you can provide. I greatly appreciate it.

Andrew

Most of the time I see the lens used, it's a 45.

Me too, but some of these guys hide the EXIF.

Yeah, I don't get hiding the EXIF data. It's a good place to put your copyright info.

But the 45mm TS seems to be the most versatile. Although I'm in the camp that feels it's a bit of a gimmick. And $1,000+ dollars for a look that gets old fast and that I've even read some clients complain about, just seems a bit too much. And if you really like it, it can totally be mimicked effectively in photoshop.

The only lens I really use is the 24mm and that's mainly for room shots and sometimes group shots and external shots showing the location. But to be honest, a lot of the T/S effects can be done digitally. It can be cool to use creative dof, but again I think it's somewhat limited and slow

17mm


Oh wait... Nikon doesn't have one . That's probably what I would get but probably not for weddings.

i have the 45 and it's probably the most common T/S lens for weddings

it's a HARD lens to know how to use because you don't want to overdo it, but also when in tilt it's tough sometimes to know if the shot was in focus or not from the LCD (ie. top of heads, eyes). I use it non-tilted pretty often for a regular 45mm f/2.8 lens.

SB-910 is looking better and better.

Thanks JR.
