If you haven’t lived under a rock on Mars for the last few years, I’m sure you’ll know that the Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world standing at 828 meters. Which makes it difficult to produce good images when standing very close to the building as things start to get really distorted, really quickly. If you follow my blog for a while, you’ll know I’m a huge fan of shooting with the 24mm PC tilt-shift lens and I’ve always been a little jealous on the Canon folks with their 17mm tilt-shift. Enter the new 19mm PC (perspective control) tilt-shift lens from Nikon.
Nikon has finally released a wider tilt-shift lens and the friendly guys at Nikon Middle East were kind enough to lend it to me for a couple of weeks. I’m still shooting with it and I’ll have a more detailed (and more technical) post next week about it, but for now, all I will say is that I was able to shoot this image without any need for perspective control in Lightroom or Photoshop.
