      What lens did you use?

    8. lukeroberts 52 months ago | reply

      It was taken with a Canon 50mm f1.4

      I am using a Canon 50mm f1.8 for freelensing. The problem is that once the objects are far, it's hard to get a significant portion focused. I am focusing to infinity, but still. I found that if I push one side of the lens into the body, I can get more into focus. However, then I get blocked by the body of the lens and portions of the photo are black.

      Any tips maybe?

      Yes that can be a problem - you have two options.

      The easiest way is to stop down a lens to something like f/4, or 5.6 or even higher. To do this, press and HOLD the depth of field preview button (just underneath the lens release button) and detach the lens. This locks the aperture blades at f/4 or 5.6 or what ever you set it to, so now you will have more of the scene in focus.

      The other option I've described here - using a Nikon or Olympus lens on Canon body allows for a much better tilt-shift effect, as these lenses are designed to have a longer lens-to-sensor distance.

      Where did you get the knee pads for the tank? Beautiful bike!

    16. lukeroberts 33 months ago | reply

      They were the original ones that came with the bike. I didn't like them, though and took them off. I sold the bike last year but I think I still have the tank pads.
