    It doesn't hurt to have a pretty girl in front of the camera either. Nice job.

    I combination of tilts like this:



    and a litte post processing in PhotoshopCC.

    Its a Tominon 135mm lens, so at the distance I was from my subject matter, the tilts were rather limited do to the front and rear standard being so close to each other. So I exaggerated the focus to achieve the look I wanted. Had I gotten the other two images, I dont think any post work would have been needed as I was MUCH closer to my subject which allowed for the extreme tilts. Hopefully I will have my doppelanastigmat unofokal 165mm mounted to a lens board soon which should take care of the front and rear standard distance issues for further shots.

    Hope this helps and makes sense

    Edit: also forgot to mention that the rear element/s (?) of the lens were removed. The previous owner did this and I am assuming it was to allow the image circle to be larger to allow for some movements. Whether this is true, I am not sure. Just a guess

    Thanks for the explanation - I guess I'll have to give it try it myself.

    It slightly bothers me how her hand is in front of the building or street light in the distance.

    This one is disturbing because focus is on the rear eye. Oh well, live and learn...
    In this very unusual case, I think that works. The closer eye is covered with hair. Kinda cool actually.

    I agree, but would have liked the hair to cover perhaps a centimeter more of her left eye. However, getting everything perfect in LF portraiture is difficult. It is beautiful.
