Earlier today I had the great honour of photographing a group of graduating law clerks on the front steps of the Supreme Court of Canada – Canada’s highest and final court of appeal. After cracking a few lawyer jokes to get the smiles flowing I quickly got down to business by using my brand new Canon TS-E 24mm tilt-shift lens to capture these photos. Among other benefits, the use of a 24mm wide-angle camera lens here allowed me to balance a clear focus on both the people and the architecture, and with respect to the architecture, apply some shift corrections in the lens to ensure the symmetry of the building’s lines evenly lined up in a parallel fashion. Overall, I love these pictures, and the razor sharp performance of my new Canon TS-E 24mm lens! The 640px sized images you see here for quick internet viewing doesn’t give the quality of this lens justice…LOL…but when blown to a larger size for prints or viewing the clarity is totally amazing. For those who have been considering the purchase of a tilt-shift lens, I would highly recommend the investment. For some added symbolism, I also captured the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill in my pictures to emphasize the important link the rule of law plays with supporting a healthy, vibrant, and accountable democracy. As always, more than just a photo with Jeffrey Meyer Photography. To everyone in the picture, I had a blast photographing you guys, and congratulations again to you on your successes and hard work!
