Axis-shifting lens shooting techniques

What other interesting applications are there for axis shifting lenses besides those commonly used to correct deformations of buildings? Following, we have sorted out the axle shift lens & nbsp; & nbsp; 6 & nbsp; major functions and related shooting notes, so that players in the near future or in the field of intentional advanced axle shift can have a clearer basic concept.

Correction of Deformation Problem of Buildings

Generally, when shooting buildings, most of them are taken from the bottom to the top, so under the influence of perspective, it is easy to shoot wide and narrow buildings, but now through the use of the offset function of the shift lens, the above problems can be easily corrected. Its operation is very simple, as long as the viewing direction (straight & nbsp; & nbsp; / & nbsp; banner) and the camera & nbsp; & nbsp; / & nbsp; & nbsp; the horizontal state of the tripod are confirmed before shooting, and then the offset function is used to adjust the upper and lower position, so that the straight and non-deformable building works can be taken, as for the details of the manipulation, the reader can refer to the bottom. The following process description.

Correction of Building Deformation Control Flow

1. Judging the orientation of the building, for example, the scene, I decided to create with banner composition.

2. Place the camera on the tripod, and confirm the camera is in a horizontal state through a solid or electronic level meter.

3. The LiveView preview screen is then used to confirm whether the image is in focus.

4. Because the camera is in a horizontal state, direct photography can only capture part or half of the building.

_Fine-tune the composition through the migration function. After reaching the ideal position, a straight and deformed building can be obtained by pressing the shutter.

Make a model-like interesting effect

Another selling point of the shift lens is that it can produce model-like interesting effects through the tilt function. Although this function can theoretically be applied to all shooting scenes or topics, I personally think that shooting from top to bottom in tall buildings or high places is the best way to show this feature. Its operation process is as follows, so I will not add it here. However, unlike the logic of building shooting mentioned above, it does not need to perform horizontal calibration before shooting. It only needs to move the tilt function after the composition of the scene is completed, and then it can produce interesting model-like images.

1. Place the camera on a tripod for overhead photography.

2. LiveView instant preview function is used for view composition, and the aforementioned zoom-in function can be used to confirm whether the image is in focus.

_Use the tilt function to tilt the lens angle of view, and keep only a part of the focus of the picture, so that we can take an interesting image of the model effect.

_Reference to the actual results.

[Note] In the process of shooting, the built-in reference line of the camera can be turned on in time as a supplement to make it easier for you to master the overall picture balance.

Image works with clear foreground and foreground can also be obtained under the maximum aperture.

In the past, if you want to get images with clear foreground and foreground, most of them will be shot through the zoom mode. But now, with the tilt function of the axis shifting lens, you can change the angle between the optical axis and the focal plane, so that you can get images with clear foreground and foreground even if you shoot with full aperture. It also has a higher shutter speed, which makes it easier to create low-light scene. Like the above pictures, they are all & nbsp; F4 & nbsp; works under full aperture, but the image effect is not much worse!

_If the inclination or offset function is not used, the lens is no different from the ordinary lens. When the maximum aperture is used, the image works with clear foreground and blurred background will also be taken.

_However, if the tilt function is used to change the angle between the optical axis and the focal plane so that it is parallel to the side of the cork, even in the case of full aperture, the image works with clear foreground and foreground can be obtained.

It can also be widely used in commercial photography.

The core of commercial photography is to pursue the authenticity of the subject, so the presentation of the form faithfully is more stringent than other shooting topics. In order to avoid distortion and distortion of the original shape of the object, many commercial photographers will buy shifting axis lens to solve this problem. For example, if we use the general medium-wide angle lens to shoot, we will make the bottle incline outward. However, using the combination of the aforementioned offset and inclination function, we can shoot. Straight and loyal to the original commercial photography.

TIPS & nbsp; & nbsp; 05 & nbsp; Shot a longer leg

What!? Axis shifting lens can also be used in portrait creation. You're right! With the special offset effect of the axis shift lens and the imaging characteristics of the wide-angle lens, a more slender portrait can be produced. For example, if we use the general wide-angle lens to shoot (the same height as the axis-shifting lens), we will get the unique deformation effect of the wide-angle lens, which will narrow the leg and make the leg length look shorter than it actually is. However, if we use the offset function of the axis-shifting lens, we will be able to shoot the portrait with no distortion and slender legs. American works.

Interesting panoramic effects

If you like funny players, you can also use the axis shift lens to play with interesting panoramic effects. The way is very simple, as long as the camera is mounted on the tripod and adjusted to a good level, using the migration function to shoot two different scenes, and then use & nbsp; & nbsp; Canon & nbsp; the accompanying & nbsp; & nbsp; PhotoStitch & nbsp; software to synthesize, you can get an interesting panoramic work, as for the details of the control, the reader can refer to it. Examine the process instructions below.

1. Judging the orientation of the building, for example, the scene, I decided to create with banner composition.

5. A perfect and interesting panorama can be obtained by fine-tuning.

[Note] The scene should not be too complex or moving objects (leaves), otherwise the synthetic effect may not be as good as expected.
