Montrose Harbor

I had wanted to use the Schneider 90mm tilt shift lens for a long time, so a couple of years ago around this time

of year, I grabbed a 5D MKIII with the slightly unusual Schneider and went out to Montrose Harbor in Chicago and made these images.

 

I like to shoot at night and I really like the look of this lens at night.

It doesn’t operate in the same way a Canon or Nikon tilt shift lens does, but once you get used to the slightly unusual way the lens

does operate, you’ll find that it’s a wonderful tool.

By the way, the star effect in two of the images below is from the f11 aperture I used, and not from a star filter.

The image above – the classic shot of the Chicago skyline from Montrose – was made with a Canon 5D MKIII and a 300mm f2.8 lens.
