Uncover and discover Tilt-Shift Photography in a new light
I always enjoyed photography since i was a child, about 15 years back. I had a toy camera once for a christmas present and until today, this toy is still in my cabinet. I was intrigued by the shape and the design the. Then, camera design was very rigid and block-y. What comes into your head when you think of a camera design or shape?
That is your childhood memories, and mine was the typical black box with the oblong shape. Old school but very nostalgic. Until more recently about 10 years back when i know of photography and study more into it, photography is very science related and intriguing.
Light is the soul of photography and light belongs to physics, chemistry and biology. I always had the trouble of barrel distortion in most of my pictures when i started taking buildings and landscape photography. The lines seem to curve, even though through my eyes they were straight line. I did a little research and Tilt-Shift photography comes into the picture.
