    Two Canon tilt-shift images

    Two recent images shot just for the fun of it. The Petersen with the 17 t/s and the DeWalt with the 24 t/s. Petersen is made up of about twenty-five images, mostly the car blurs. Five millimeter rise on the lens. The DeWalt is 59 slices of focus and about thirty hours of post. 5DSr.Name:  DeWalt_246A8076_v5.jpg

    In this case, and in most cases, I start with a Live View focus at the nearest point of focus and then manually rotate the focus a micro amount. As you move from the front to the back, you can start to use larger slices as the depth of field gets a bit more. I've never used the auto focus feature in Helicon, as it's just not that big of a deal to do it manually.

    Love the Dewalt image but 30 hours in post!!

    Is that because you painted the layers in manually?

    No, the focus slices weren't done manually, although I have done that many times. It's because there's an enormous amount of fine detail work just cleaning up the product, removing casting lines, smoothing out misalignments in the casing, etc. Then, the entire background and reflective surface is remanufactured (save for the reflections themselves) in Photoshop. That part alone is enough to make a lot of folks sweat profusely.
