Paulstw Posted September 20, 2013 Share Posted September 20, 2013 I just bought a Tokina 11-16 2.8 for my Canon 7D, and while kit is very rarely talked about on here. I'm guessing its important. I have been noticing on viewing other peoples photos, that there is a lot of extreme leaning of buildings. Strange perspectives and dutch angles used a lot in portfolios. Is this something that sells well? or Is it generally frowned upon? I took this today just having a play around with my new lens. I photoshopped the sky in and dodged and burned every brick and colour balanced the image to reflect a nice sunny day. However, the angle actually made me feel quick dizzy while I was working on it. Glasgow University by Campsie Photography, on Flickr *Disclaimer*I know how some feel about Flickr, and I had no intention in putting this on Alamy. It's not symmetrical enough for me, and I don't like the lean at all. I just took it because someone has asked for a shot like this for a wedding I'm doing in two weeks, and I wanted to see how it looked. Anyway, the dutch angle thing (tilting the camera) seems to not only be done on buildings but on street signs, and shop signs. What's the general feeling on it?
