The tilt-shift effect has become really popular in recent years as more people have discovered that these lenses exist and the miniaturising effect they can have. But tilt-shift lenses are expensive, so many people resort to faking the effect in post. No matter how much work you put into it, though, an effect you add on the computer is never going to look quite like shooting it for real.
But if your wallet’s crying at the price of tilt-shift lenses, don’t worry. It turns out that Fotodiox has a range of adapters available that let you turn many older regular lenses into tilt-shift lenses. In this video, NOMO Films takes a look at them and some of the types of photos and footage they can let you shoot.
