First shots with Photex tilt/shift 35 mm
Posted By: KungKrille, 06-19-2008, 01:19 AM

I finally recieved my Photex tilt/shift 35 mm lens with a K mount. I didn´t know
that it was so hard to use a fully manual lens on a dslr. I have read some about
the technology behind tilt/shift lenses but that was even harder to figure out.
Well, after some try and error I got these shots. I don´t think they look like
miniatures but at least the tilt effect is pretty cool.

tilt shift lenses aren't new. they're awesome when used from a high elevation.

i'll pick one up one day, just for the fun of it. i'd love to get some tilt/shift shots of parliment hill in ottawa.
That's an awesome shot in your link. I could make good use of that lens around here. A tilt/shift setup is very high on my LBA list.

I had no idea you could do that! I had to look at them a few times to see if the first one had real people - i totally figured it for a miniature setup. Extraordinary effect.

Incredible! Question, for those who know about this kind of thing: Will a Lensbaby do something like this?

I dont know about lens-babys but you can get a simalar effect with photoshop, (I know its not the same as buying a tilt shift lens, but its fun to play with).

Heres an example of one shot I did with a 18-125 sigma and a bit of PP.....

I don´t think a lensbaby works in the same way. You get a sharp spot in the middle that you can move around and the blurred edges looks kind of zoom blur with extreme settings. Correct me if I´m wrong

I have seen a lot of excellent tilt simulated images done in Photoshop - maybe better then the real ones. You have more control as you can decide afterwards how and where you want to apply the lens blur. An advice though - don´t use gaussion blur. That will in most situations result in a soft look instead of a narrow DOF.

Now I have bought a real tilt lens so I have better to use it
