#52weekProject: Week 5 – Freelensing Chicago

Week 5: Freelensing Chicago

The Chicago Theater

Decided to try a little bit of free-lensing for this week right around the corner from work. Taken Monday, March 3rd, 2014.

What is free-lensing, you ask? (No, you didn’t. But I’ll tell you anyway.) Free-lensing is when you take your lens off of the body and hand hold it, so you can tilt and shift the lens to create a different plane of focus (basically a poor man’s tilt-shift lens).

I used a 50mm lens from my medium format Bronica ETRSi setup, which allows me a little more room to tilt and shift the lens without drastic vignetting, but you do end up with a softer image and some light leaks. Not sure I really dig it the final image, but you know, it’s all about trying something new!
