tilt shift lens 0111 DIY: Tilt shift PC lens

Tilt-shift photography can be a really expensive undertaking. Then again you can simulate the effect in Photoshop, but it just isn’t the same. This is a great project to make that will save you a lot of money compared to the commercial versions.

I know there are people out there who would love to experiment with a PC Shift lens, but the cost of purchasing one is generally prohibitive unless you plan to shoot professionally with the lens. (A nikon shift lens with tilt functions cost over $1000, BTW: The Nikon guys once took a look over this and said, “why would you do that to such a nice camera? We sell that lens you know.” I know. That’s the point).
