Tilt-Shift Lenses – Explained

On this video, (part of a Nature and Landscape Photography class on creativelive) photographer John Greengo takes a look at the basics of tilt-shift lenses and how they can be implemented in our photography.

As part of a landscape class the focus of the tutorial is landscape shooting and panoramas. Greengo uses some nifty demo video which shows exactly how the TS lens shifts and tilts and demonstrates some examples in real world images.

We have looked at Tilt Shift lenses several times in the past including J.P. Morgan’s Using a Tilt-Shift Lens for Focus Control, lensrentals on how to use Tilt Shift lensesHow to Add a Tilt Shift Lens Blur to Aerial Photos Using Photoshop and even on a spectacular timelapse – The Lion City: Tilt Shift Timelapse Dream.

We have covered many more great tips for landscape photography on our landscape photography section here on LensVid.
