This is the set up. OK I took the final shot a few rows back but you get the idea of the actual view as recorded on my iPhone 7 Plus. 

And this is what I could see through the screen on my Canon 6D

It is amazing to think how much of a scene I can record with my Canon 6D. 

Equipment used to take this photo. 

Image capture settings

  • AV Mode
  • Shutter speed – 1 second
  • Aperture F8
  • ISO 100
  • Manual focus. Yes Manual focus – this is one of the things you need to remember about tilt shift lenses. 

I used the 10 second self-timer to take the photo, which is a single image capture. 

Image processed in Lightroom. No Photoshop required.
