Introducing… Tiltshift!

I set my alarm for ridiculous o’clock and was hiking up a windy hill in Glasgow by 7.30am. Okay, this is what I love about photography; it gets me out of bed! It gets me going to locations I otherwise would never give myself the time to visit, and I get to do it on my own (I am sociable, but ultimately I’m a loner). These were taken with the 45mm ∆í2.8 TS-E, which is a ‘normal’ lens with tilt and shift capabilities, so some of these shots aren’t making use of the tiltshift mechanism. The ones that do, however, need a lot of improvement.

 
 

Good Morning, Glasgow

I sat down to finish off a client’s photos at 8.00am, hoping to be completely finished by the time ‘real’ work began at 9. The sunrise, however, caught my attention and was too good to resist, so several minutes later I was running towards the Clyde with my tripod and camera in hand. Landscapes don’t generally interest me much, but when the light falls a certain way they can really push my button. In fact, when the light falls a certain way, it can make any subject push my button.

I only fired off a couple of frames of the clyde at different exposures. Winter mornings can be so pretty.

 
 

Glasgow

My plans fell through last night fairly last minute. Not to worry, I thought, it’s Glasgow and there’s always something to do. Right enough I got a text from one of the guys I longboard with, reminding me his band is playing at the Merchant City Festival, and an hour later I was sitting in a beer garden with one of my oldest and best friends who is visiting from Brooklyn, New York, where she now lives. This was the view from the house party I ended up at.
