Did you know you can use a Tilt Shift Lens to get everything in perfect focus... even with a wide aperture setting? That's what Jay did for this shot he took in Iceland. We don't recommend purchasing a TS-E lens until you understand how they work. Instead, do what we did - rent one from LensRentals.com. They'll send you the lens on the date you specify, and you can just ship it back when you return. We kept two TS-E lenses for 13 days, and it was great to be able to use them on-location without breaking the bank.

While on-location in Iceland, we created this short video too give you an overview of how we used a tilt-shift lens to capture a wide vista in sharp focus - while using a wide aperture to let in as much light as possible. Please forgive our questionable videography skills. :)

About Author Varina Patel

There is nothing more remarkable to me than the power of nature. It is both cataclysmic and subtle. Slow and continuous erosion by water and wind can create landscapes every bit as astonishing as those shaped by catastrophic events – and minuscule details can be as breathtaking as grand vistas that stretch from one horizon to the other. Nature is incredibly diverse. Burning desert sands and mossy riverbanks… Brilliant sunbeams and fading alpenglow… Silent snowfall and raging summer storms… Each offers a unique opportunity. I am irresistibly drawn to the challenge of finding my next photograph, and mastering the skills required to capture it effectively.
