For years I've wanted to mess around with a tilt shift lens. After seeing my buddy, Efrain, shoot a ton of sick photos with a tilt shift while walking around Cuba, I was fully motivated to get my own. Sony doesn't make a tilt shift lens so I had to look for a Canon lens which I ended up getting a really good deal on Ebay.
One of the things I was most looking forward to was using it in the air. I've been a huge fan of Vincent Laforet's aerial tilt-shift photography, so I was genuinely looking forward to giving this a try. Not only was this the first time I took this lens in the air but it was the first time I got to use a tilt shift ever, so I had almost no idea what I was doing. Most of the shots I took didn't come out but this was one of the few that I liked of the Brooklyn Bridge.
It's super hard to focus with a tilt shift since its full manual but the Sony A7SII has focus peeking so it was relatively easy to catch focus when you're flying over New York City at about 100 knots. This is a huge advantage I feel that the Sony A7 cameras have over most DSLRs. You have focus peaking in live view and when looking through the viewfinder. Although this was my first time shooting with the tilt shift, I feel this lens/camera combination is a real game changer.
