A bunch more photos taken with my DIY tilt lens. This time classic use to get the miniature look.
Previous set of street photography is here.
here is what you need:
I tried a buch of different shapes to find the right size for the socket. As the lens comes from a bigger camera with longer flange distance there is a bit of space for the joint but not too much. If you make it too thick then you will loose ability to focus to the infinity. A toy plastic ball fit my lens quite well but it was way too soft to use. I ended up using it as a form to make more sturdy resin+fibreglass joint. If you have something hard in the right shape you can use it instead of making one. As this is a prototype I only taped the socket to the lens (unfortunately didn’t have black tape). To hold everything together I used a piece of rubber glove, taped on both sides to the lens and to the mount. Looks dodgy but works quite well.
Here are profesional conversion done by Maciek. He uses shower heads to do it. Quite ingenious :-). Link
all above were shot with Bronika 75mm/2.8. This medium format lens works beautifully on smaller 5D sensor.
Bronika to Canon adapter consists of: chineese canon to m42 adapter, a piece of PVC pipe, and Bronika rear lens cup. It is not pretty but works and costs nothing :-)
a bunch of photos taken with two lenses sticky taped together. 135mm/2.8 + reversed 50mm/1.7.
cyclop vs medusa:
I came to realization that the same exact shots presented as photos would be something completely different. There are frames in this video that I would have considered my very best macro shots if they were taken as stills. A video however needs to have a story and a flow. A bunch of very different unrelated shots put together as video doesn’t really work but as photos can create an interesting collection. Here it is, second part of my macro explorations (part 1 available here):
