Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Using a tilt-shift lens to capture a city scene, part of Architectural Photography: A Fine Art Approach.
- It's time to make an image of the iconoic Cloud Gate,…and let's get started.…We've got the tripod out,…which is great for stability.…No wind, so here I am in Chicago with no wind.…This is a real treat.…Early in the morning is definitely…an advantage for that.…So, tripod set up.…Not a lot of people.…As the morning progresses,…more and more and coming.…But still, pretty open area, which is great.…I've got the camera locked down…with the remote shutter.…Any time we're doing long exposures,…have to have this out.…
Even if I wasn't doing long exposures,…whenever I'm on a tripod, I use this…to take all the exposures…so that I'm not touching the camera…or doing any shaking or vibrating…of the camera itself, okay?…So what we're going to do is…let's turn our camera on and take a look…at the back of the screen here in live view.…I've gone ahead and worked on a composition,…and one thing that's really striking about it…is my buildings are perfectly straight.…They're perfectly vertical.…And the reason is is I have a tilt-shift lens on.…
