Nice one ED, I'd like to see this with a big saturation boost...it adds to the "toy" effect.

cheers,

rob

Not done this before, is this any better?

I'm thinking that focusing on the middle of the parking lot would have only the cars in focus, thus yielding a bit more toy effect. It seems like the background is not as out of focus as the foreground. Keep posting, it's interesting to see what other people are coming up with.

definitely better, how much uptilt were you using, I'd use 8deg to maximise the effect. Ideally you'd want to be a bit closer to the action to.

I'm not sure how these will be posted, so the file name should inform. 24mm non tilt at 3.5 and 14, then tilted at 3.5 and 14

The more I read, the more intrigued I am............ When i first saw these TS-E lenses on canon's website I thought, "now there's something I would never use. Who uses those? How on earth do they work? What are they for?"

Well, I still have no idea exactly how they work, LOL, but I'm totally intrigued! I love the miniature effect you can get with these! I mostly take pics of animals, flowers and my daughter, so still not sure what i'd use it for, but I want one anyway! LOL

............... Just came along to the flower pics at the end of the page........ WOW! Would be a good macro-type lens for the flower photography?

yes, good for macro, but key uses are correction of perspective in shooting up or down at big things like buildings, and best of all for infinite depth of field at near wide open apertures for landscapes where you can't afford long shutter speeds (e.g. where you don't want movement blur)

Actually, TS_Es are not just good for macro, but because of the tilt possibilities they are excellent for macro - just my take :D.

By tilting the plane of focus one can achieve way more effective DoF than would ever be possible with a "normal" macro lens. Obviously, the longer TS-Es are better for this than the shorter ones due to the large WDs at larger magnifications, but I even used the TS-E 24 quite succesfully for semi-macro shots.

Kind regards, Wim

Took it to the Franklin Park Conservatory today, just playing around.

Used full tilt at about 45 degrees on this one, nearly got it right. Just missed the tip.

Used tilt, which probably helped get the top of the cactus in focus, but its more of a macro like shot.

Not bad pop for 24mm. I don't think I had any tilt in this one. f/5.6, ISO 800

Used tilt to get more of the front orchid in focus, but should have stopped down more to get more DOF on the flower itself. f/4, ISO400 But, its a good image to see the bokeh, which is fairly pleasing.

Those orchid shots are stunning and I really like the spiny cactus shot. I guess I need to try shooting the image I am having trouble with and bring it here for help.

nice shots, I like the first 2. To me, these lenses are like having fast lenses where you get separation.
