Perspective corrections in architectural photography
I took these pictures yesterday and they make a pretty good example of using a “tilt/shift” lens to correct distortions in perspective when photographing architecture. The tilt/shift lens allows the relationship between the lens and the film plane to be manipulated, like a traditional view camera. The lens and film plane are “locked” perpendicular to one another on all other cameras. The chief use is to straighten converging lines appearance and the appearance that buildings are “leaning backwards”.
