So guys, show your results!

Include a description of gear that was used (camera, lens, adapter, degree of tilt/shift).

Say something about overall experience and don't forget to share some tips on technique.

If you have those, include also comparison pics of normal and tilted/shifted shots or with different positions of adjustment.

DIY is very welcome too!

Let's go!

Some of my favorite "Alts" are tilt/shift lenses. They are manual focus, they can be use to turn a different perspective vs. a standard fixed lens - however my T/S's of choice are from the wonderful Canon line-up.

Do those qualify?
I've always felt the Canon TS-E's are just as "Alt" as third party auto lenses. JMO

I'm really glad to see this thread! The TS-E 90 is one of my most used lenses for general purpose photography, not just tilt/shift stuff. Whenever I use it I always feels like I'm using an alt lens, due to the manual focus and character of the lens and wish I could post here. Thanks

Here are a few recent ones, all 5DMkII:






(some tilt)






(some tilt)






(no tilt/shift)






(no tilt, some shift)






(some tilt)






(no tilt/shift)

Thanks mMontag (do you understand German?),
I recently sold 24mm TS-e, plan to get it again.
Lovely shot.

phashant,

Three of my grandparents are from Germany - one from Ireland - my parents did not learn/speak German. One of the first companies I worked for had a large employee base of Germans - and others from Europe and the common language was German & English. I got to learn some German - mostly industry related words & phrases - the guys would tease the hell out of me because I "lost my accent" and would change an English lead conversation to German (with a grin) - just to remind me. That was 30 years ago and I have forgotten most of what little I learned.

24II TS-E - Hand held - 1 degree tilt - f9

Ellington:
Consummate photography partner - always waits, never complains, best GPS available and he once searched and found a $160.00 GND in it's leather pouch that I dropped in wilderness back country conditions. BTW both his parents are German imports - his sire was a "V" rated third degree Schutzhund - his dame was a second degree. The AKC American breeders have just ruined this breed.

Biometar 80/2.8 for Pentacon 6 with P6-Canon Tilt adapter:





P6 is a medium format system so the coverage circle is big and allows making adapters with tilt feature for 35mm. I was trying to get both the couple and the roof in focus but there was not enough tilt available.

Here's a Hartblei 65mm Super-Rotator on a Canon 5DMk2 @ F3.5, with some vertical shift for framing and some left-right tilt to get the face of the post in focus.

Great shots everyone!
Mmontag,

Like the 2nd TS-E 90 dune shot with the dramatic low-angle side lighting which highlights the ripples more.
Looks like a great dog. Wish mine was more patient when taking landscape shots or I would take him more.
Instead, he ends up rapping his leash around my tripod legs.
