Yea unfortunately options for alt TS lens are close to zero. Only somewhat comparable option is Mirex and Im not sure, but there really isnt much 24mm medium format lens. Probably only fisheyes.

I think Canon TS-E lens are closer to alt, probably as very unique MP-E macro. I dont know how much TS-E lens Canon sells but its probably quite low number cause I see pics from them only on very rare occasions. Most Canon users prefer to shoot even zooms for landscapes..

Samyang 85/1.4, wide open.

When I'm having a dull day, I go visit these folks.

Featuring gratuitously shallow DOF.

No correction of vignetting or CA, only sharpening, exposure, and contrast types of settings (LR4).



Are these friends/family?

I'm not having a go at you, just a comment, but it's generally not good form to show headstones of total strangers (if they are). I personally wouldn't be offended, but every time I've shot at a cemetery I've been asked by 'management' not to show tomb stone details if at all possible. I think this is purely out of respect to the families who wouldn't want images showing up some where by surprise. Again, I'm not having a go at you, just commenting in case you've never come across this, and maybe it's not an issue in your neck of the woods either.

I really like that, but I think you should have focused on the eyes.

John -- Thanks for your remarks.

Perhaps it is a cultural taboo in some parts of the world. But here, if it is in open public display, it's fair game (possibly barring commercial use without permission). I'm sure there could be a problem if some slanderous or libelous inference were made, but otherwise the details are all part of the public record.

In other words, no one has directed me to stop or shown me legal reason not to record grave markings.

I find it interesting to record how people publicly memorialize those they've loved and lost. That's certainly a diverse and touching cultural imperative among humans. I'm more attuned to the method of decoration than the identity of the deceased.

Taking the photos might be considered in poor taste, but I'm seldom referred to as Mr. Manners.

Thanks for the comments folks.

Jim, the Mirex tilt shift adapter i'm using has 15mm movement left and right of center.

So 3 shots are taken, one shifted fully left, one centered and one shifted fully right, then merged in PS.

The shot below shows all 3 shots before merging together.

I also used about 2' tilt to help get the DOF to extend from the closest flower to the distance.

Similar results are possible using a pano head but as I have the shift adapter I find it an easy method of pano stitching

John, it looks like there might be enough overlap between the left and right shots to skip the middle shot. Have you tried this?
