Tilt-shift lenses can be very tricky to get used to (particularly the tilting part) and since I got my first tilt-shift lens I have always tried to experiment with it, getting the feel for how the different tilt values work in different situations. I’m starting to get the hang of it, but it will probably still take me a few months to do everything intuitively with it. The photograph I’m posting today is probably my favourite tilt-shifted image so far.
As those of you following me on Instagram might have seen, a couple of days ago I was shooting for a client in Abu Dhabi. It was a really good day for shooting outside and in between all the client images, I managed to shoot a couple of personal images too. The image below was taken from the roof of the Al Ain Tower, looking down at a swimming pool on the roof of a nearby building. My tilt was the maximum the lens would allow and the lens was also twisted 30 degrees to the left. The post processing was very simple with a curve pushing the contrast and enhancing the high-key feel of the image.
