Basic Tilt and Shift Movements

Anyone who follows my work knows I am a huge fan of Tilt and Shift lenses. These lenses open up so many possibilities for landscape photographers. I am currently working on an eBook that will highlight all the methods to use for creative photography using Tilt-Shift lenses. For now here is a ‘teaser’ video showing the basic movements of a Tilt Shift lens. Before you can use a Tilt Shift lens you need to know the mechanics of the movements. The theory and practical uses of the movements will follow in subsequent videos and in the detailed eBook.

  7. It likely won’t work on an iPad, because iPads won’t play flash — talk to Steve Jobs

  8. This is great! My lens can do so much more than I’ve been doing with it. Must go out and practice!

  9. […] Basic Tilt and Shift Movements – Una de las lentes que está en mi lista de la compra es la Canon 24mm TS-E Mark II, algún día me permitiré el caro capricho. Uno de los culpables de mi interés en este tipo de lentes es el fotógrafo Darwin Wiggett. En el siguiente vídeo introduce brevemente los movimientos que permiten este tipo de lentes. […]

    Ok, I am not on an iPad, but I am on a Mac computer, and I also cannot watch your video. So does that means people with Mac computers can’t watch your video? What happens for people with Mac computers for your ebook?
