Breaking Down How Tilt-Shift Works and How To Use It for Focus Control

From Jay P. Morgan of The Slanted Lens comes an educational and behind the scenes video out of Yanks Air Museum in Chino, California. Throughout the video, Morgan gives insight into the process of using a tilt-shift lens and shares some nice background information on how a tilt-shift lens actually works.

Fair warning: after the 6-minute mark, the 11-minute long video is pretty much a commercial for various gear and resources. However, commercialization aside, it’s well worth the watch.

If you’re looking to learn a bit more about tilt-shift photography it’s the type of video breakdown we like, because it provides quick, concise information as to how the optics work alongside real-world examples of how you can go about using it.

    Nice video. I am not really convinced by the examples inside the plane, a 50mm at wide aperture would also allow him to single out one of the soldier in the line (that is perpendicular to the sensor). The examples used on the outside of the plane are much more clear and relevant to illustrate TS capacities.
