ぼちぼちいきましょう. Tokyoluv - A Tokyo Blog. [daily dose of imagery] Stop" Here's the first of what I hope will be many shots taken with my new Kipon M42 Tilt and Shift adapter along with a Asahi Pentax Super Takumar 50mm f/1.4 that I picked up on eBay recently.
If you're not familiar with tilt shift lenses take a look at this link. It explains the basics of camera movements and how these affect the appearance of your images. For those of you who are more familiar: this shot was taken with 8 degrees of horizontal tilt at an aperture of f/4. Having taken a closer look at it - i.e. on a decent screen rather than the back of the camera - I think I probably overdid it a touch: there's just too much blur on the right, and the outer edges of both of Rhowan's arms are a bit soft. Next time, if I'm shooting a similar shot, I think I'll try somewhere around 5 degrees instead. AMERICAN SUBURB X.
