This post was made specially for the contest How I Took It.
A lot of us making a tilt lens for our dslr thought about using the medium format lens but not many people know the full frame lenses will give the trick too. I mod the lenses already for some time and so far I'm not bored with it. Why I use full frame lenses? - simple because of the bokeh - at apertures lower than 2.8 is just incredibly delicious and I can not stop myself from shooting with this modified lenses. Check my pictorial how I transfom my old and lovely Pentacon 50mm f1.8 to a rubbery, tilty piece of glass.
Let hook them together! (pictorial shoot with mobile via instagram)
Dismantle the lens or undress the glass in translation by google ;)
Naked lens, time to strip the shower head
Bit of cutting with a handsaw to get proper size...
Some cosmetic work and gluing parts together
...but now the hardest stage of the work...
...How I Did It - hard to explain but I will try to explain it somehow so...
...magic light of the Full Moon under the influence and power of Mighty Unicorn gave me the strength to do it
Every self-respecting handyman not supposed to forget about using some cable ties
