Solo option (1 on 1 instruction), 25% discount for 2 participants, 33% discount for 3 or 4 participants (bring a friend). Limited to maximum of four participants. Participants will need a camera system with a tilt lens(es), which means a Nikon or Canon DSLR or Sony A7/A7R system with adapter for Nikon/Canon/other tilt lens. Or something else. Renting is one way to try out a lens.

We will of course look for better light than this daylight image, but how can it be sharp at f/2.8 from under my feet to Lembert Dome in the distance?! Come and learn about the classic way to “cheat” depth of field.
