Why you DON'T need a tilt-shift lens--an article by me published in UK's Photo Blog
Mar 3, 2011

http://www.photographyblog.com/articles/why_you_dont_need_a_tilt-shift_lens/

I wrote an article on how to correct distortion that can ruin architectural panoramas and architectural (or other types) shots taken with very wide lenses. Mark Goldstein of the UK's Photography Blog very kindly has published it for me! I hope you'll take a look and let me know what you think.

I noticed that someone has already pointed out that a tilt-shift lens would allow one to do the technique I've described in seconds, without a few minutes of photoshopping involved, but as I will momentarily respond to him, he is correct, obviously, but not everyone can afford a $5000+ lens sadly. . . I'd love to try one out though!

I also know that there are other ways to correct this kind of agonizing distortion, but it is just one technique that I had randomly discovered that was quicker and easier than others.

Finally, I also know that I could load in a 12-24mm lens correction profile right into CS5's ACR, but I haven't done that yet (I will, don't worry!)

Best wishes, Cindy
