Tilt Shift Photography

Tilt-shift photography employs a unique type of lens capable of moving in various directions, thereby producing distinctive effects. These lenses, operate on a principle different from that of standard lenses. They utilize the Scheimpflug principle, which asserts that clear images are obtained when the line of focus intersects the camera's sensor and the subject in a straight line, allowing for sharp photographs. Unlike standard lenses, where the focal plane is always parallel to the sensor, tilt-shift lenses can adjust the barrel to tilt and shift, altering the position of the lens's focal plane in relation to the camera's sensor. This enables selective focusing on specific areas on a single plane or allows either the foreground or background to stay sharp when traditional lenses might struggle to maintain focus across the entire scene.
