Hell's Canyon from Black Point
Here is an example of a shot that I wanted the foreground rocks and the amazing canyon in the same shot. I needed a wide lens but didn't want to go too wide. 16mm would have included everything but the foreground rocks would have been too large compared to the canyon. 24mm was a better choice but I could not get the foreground and canyon in the same shot unless I rotated the camera vertical I didn't want to do that as that would chop off the curve of the river and other elements. I could have done a pano by simply rotating the camera down to the rocks for one shot and then up for the canyon. But that would have caused distortion in both shots and the end result would have looked un-natural and a fair amount of cropping would have been needed on the stitched composite. So I used my 24mm tilt-shift lens. The camera was level to avoid distortion. I metered the scene and switched to manual mode so both images would be the same exposure. I then shifted the lens down to capture the foreground and took the 1st shot. I then shifted the lens up to include the canyon and took the 2nd shot. I could have shifted the lens up more for a third shot, but I liked the composition and used only two.
Before any shots were taken, I also tilted the mens down thus tilting the focal planes allowing me depth of field near to far.
I stitched the images together in Lightroom and did some processing on that file. I then sent the edited version to Photoshop for some father editing (luminosity masks to set white and black points).
This was shot with a Canon 1DX, Canon 24mm TS-E f/3.5, ISO 100, f/8, 1/320s. The end result is a 24.4mp image (the 1DX is an 18mp camera).
