| p.1 #3 · Shooting weddings with a Tilt and Shift lens |
I went through this phase myself... fundamentally what you have to ask yourself whether or not the tilting effect is *adding* anything to the photo that would not be there with an ordinary lens.
More often than not, the answer is "no".
The pictures posted in the article are very good, but they would have been equally as good non-tilted as well. Regardless of what photo-nerds think, many brides don't like having the hair/makeup/dress they put so much effort into on the day of the wedding completely blurred out in their pictures.
All of that said, I believe that a T/S lens can be used effectively for weddings and portraits, but its a lot trickier than most people realize. Ultimately it lens itself to being a niche lens that is almost always overused by those who own it.
