Beautiful shots. I have never gotten a chance to play with a TS lens. Do you have one, Johanna?

I want the nikon 40mm TS badly. Now more than ever.

Has anyone tried something like a lensbaby edge for this kind of thing? For architecture and landscapes, you want the precision of a tilt shift on a tripod, but for hand held portraiture, I'm wondering if a lensbaby would be more cost effective. You're not going to shoot the whole wedding with a TS lens (not tilted, anyway), but for the 3 shots in every wedding where you'd want an effect like this, would a much cheaper lensbaby be good enough?

Mark, no, I don't have a TS lens and I don't do weddings :-) But I thought this would be cool. Ann, I think a LB would probably give the same effect and yes, would be easier to use. But I'm no expert!!

Very nice. I have been tempted to get one. One of my favourite wedding photographers, Jonas Peterson uses one a lot to stunning effect. Too much money for me at the moment but i may get back into the lensbaby for a few shots at a wedding or use my zeiss 80mm medium format lense with a tilt adapter to get a rough but similar effect.

@rooum Thanks for sharing that link to Jonas' photography. So beautiful!

Something like this will let you achieve the same effect and much, much more.

Or if you just want to go "off the shelf" look at this

I'm pathetic at DYI projects... But that looks way cool. And heavy...
