The National Art Center, Tokyo, in Miniature: shot with Hasselblad HTS Tilt-Shift Adaptor

This shot is part of a series I'm working on, called 'Tokyo ToyTown'. Everything is shot using the Hasselblad HTS1.5 tilt shift adaptor. Various camera bodies used. one mine, some borrowed. This one was shot the other day, with my own Hasselblad, the H4D-40.

The 80mm lens f/2.8 , when I use it on the adaptor, becomes a 120mm f/4.5

I took this shot pretty much at the full 18mm of downward shift and 12degrees of downward tilt. The HTS is unique amongst such lenses & adaptors in that it records, via the EXIF, the exact amount of movement on each shot.

The tech stuff

This is a panorama that I merged together using Photoshop's 'Photomerge' feature, set to 'Reposition' and 'Blend Images Together'. For massive and complicated panoramas, I tend to use Kolor's AutoPano Pro.

I made this shot with four photos. The full-sized version is over a metre across and works out at about 77MP resolution.
