What is tilt photography?

In order to consciously shift the optical axis of the lens and the photosensitive surface of the image sensor, tilting the lens for shooting is called “tilt shooting”.
Originally, tilt shooting is a shooting technique for focusing on a wide range of subjects, but in recent years it has become popular for shooting in a miniature diorama style.
You can shoot with freely controlled blurring, such as intentionally blurring one half of the image or blurring both the top, bottom, left, and right sides.

For a miniature diorama-style photo with the tilt ring adjusted to blur the top and bottom.
Adjust the tilt ring to create a photo without blur from the front to the back.

Method of operation

You can change the tilt of the lens up, down, left and right by loosening the tilt ring. You can adjust the degree of blur by adjusting the tilt angle of the aperture ring and lens. Please try various things and find the right blur.

It can be tilted up to 15 ° in all directions.

Taking a miniature diorama-style photo

Tilt the lens up. Set the aperture ring to F1.6. Turn the focus ring to focus on any location.

Taking a photo that is in focus from the front to the back

Tilt the lens down. Turn the focus ring to focus on the whole.

Example

This is an example taken with “GIZMON Miniature Tilt Lens”. You can also shoot normally without using tilt.
