This guy is taking a photo of Vancouver False Creek. So what makes him a ‘real pro’?

  1. Tripod
  2. Good camera, a Canon 6D
  3. The best lens for architecture: The Canon 24mm TSE. It’s a tilt/shift lens that allows for the building to be ‘straight’ and not fall over when the camera is pointed up.

I wonder what he’s trying to adjust. The lens is set to 0. This means: no tilt and no shift. I have a whole sequence and in all of the images the lens is still in neutral position (no adjustment).
