Photography podcast #90 features an interview with Canadian landscape photographer Darwin Wiggett. It was recorded on a photo tour in the Alberta Rockies led by Darwin. In the interview Darwin discusses why he often uses a tilt shift lens in landscape photography. For those that have never heard of a tilt shift lens, it’s a lens that has the ability to tilt and/or shift while attached to your camera. The tilting aspect of the lens allows you to get amazing depth of field (REGARDLESS‚ of aperture) because the lens can tilt in the same direction as the plane of focus. The shift aspect of the lens allows you to correct non parallel lines in camera when photographing a building for example. It also allows for easy panoramas. Darwin is a fabulous teacher so take a listen and it will all make even more sense. We also talk a bit about testing your lenses, resolution, aperture, depth of field and image circles.
