Tilt & Shifting

Posted: Thursday, March 15, 2012 by Stained in Labels: , , , , , ,

There are two kinds of breakdowns in my opinion. One where you scream out loud in desperation and fall into a pool of tears while the second is when you have an internal meltdown with a smile plastered on your face. The second one is the one that freaks me out. As the penguins would say... 'Just smile and wave boys, smile and wave...'

Anyway on topic. SJ bought a Canon EF 24mm 3.5 TS-E lens a month or so back and I've got one thing to say about it...LOVE IT!!! I haven’t been shooting much for myself which is evident from the missing photo posts on this blog and my photo specific tumblr blog so it was refreshing to see myself up and running thanks to the lens immense learning curve.

I’ve learned photography through constant trial and error so this lens is perfect for the photo geek in me. It constantly allows and expects me to tinker with what I shoot and how I compose it while throwing a curveball in the form of its ability to Tilt and Shift which in layman’s terms means AWESOMENESS. I haven’t had this amount of fun for a very long time which is quite surprising. I did buy myself a Canon EF 135mm f2 at the same time with SJ which happened to be on my wish list but I didn’t enjoy it as much.

Anyway two images I shot in the last two days which I adore to bits. Not the best display of the prowess of this lens but I don’t care as I like them… (^_^)

Somebody care...

I'm living a life
One that's not mine
I'm dreaming a dream
One in which I do not wish to be
I want to get out
I want to leave
But how much can I scream?
How much can I shout?
I need you to be there
I need you to care
But you just stand apart
And all you do is stare
Please, somebody save me...
Please...somebody care...
