Video: Close-up use of lens tilt

Lens tilt basics: Keith Cooper looks at how tilt and the focus setting of your lens moves the plane of focus at near distances. Using the tilt setting of a tilt/shift lens, the plane of focus swings round until it runs parallel to the direction the camera is facing. This is the second of Keith’s videos looking at lens tilt. (9m 45s)

Keith has written an article going into the use of lens tilt in much more detail. This has links to downloadable version of the tilt tables shown in the video, and how to use them.

One of a series of short videos looking at different functions of tilt and shift lenses.

There is much much more about tilt/shift lenses and their use on our tilt/shift index page.
