50mm f1.8 Tilt-Shift Portraits

Greetings Folks,

I've been playing around with my DIY 50mm f1.8 tilt lens on my E-P3. Here are some samples. I'm obviously still getting the hang of it and if you have suggestions or comments, don't hesitate to let loose.

Direct sun through my diffuser. Fair amount of tiilt. Very difficult to see the LCD, I could have used a 90 degree EVF about now. Wind was blowing just right.

Less tilt on this one.

Large amount of tilt. Hair light is el sol. Difficult to control background. Reflector lit.

Best focusing and tilt of the set though one some her expression was a bit better. Would have tried more, but it was biting cold out!

What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?
