When you look through your dslr viewfinder what you see? Some of you see nothing (mostly because cap is on) and some of you see what normally you don't wanna see (like cats and other too cute stuff for pros like us) But what to do when you wear SquarePants that don't fit your viewfinder and your pocket is empty to buy hassel or other real heavy mens pulling muscle medium 6by6 only right format camera. I can't help you with that but i can help you to see your world in right way and by that i don't wanna narcotize you or by sending you to Specsavers. I wanna work with you around your dslr viewfinder. Be warned you need more like basic skills to do this mod, when you are not comfortable with that simple don't do it. If you still want to do this, find a clean, well-lit dust-free place and let's get started:
A lot of us making a tilt lens for our dslr thought about using the medium format lens but not many people know the full frame lenses will give the trick too. I mod the lenses already for some time and so far I'm not bored with it. Why I use full frame lenses? - simple because of the bokeh - at apertures lower than 2.8 is just incredibly delicious and I can not stop myself from shooting with this modified lenses. Check my pictorial how I transfom my old and lovely Pentacon 50mm f1.8 to a rubbery, tilty piece of glass.
Why I do what I do? Why can not I do what Others are doing? Why I get wet in the rain? Why I freeze in the cold wind? Why I not get paid for it? Why Am I always late? There are many why, but only one answer - That 's why ;
On my holidays away from Dublin i did it again. I was helping to build copy of my diyTilt project. Paweł Piątek wedding photographer from my town ask me for help to get the same results. Good news tilt is working - bad news his lens look better like mine :P
