I haven't done much work in Williamsburg since the early summer, when I shot the first four Williamsburg posts. Last weekend I went back to check out some of the Autumn light. In the summer the light was coming strong from the West, which meant a lot of straight on shots of the warehouses in the neighborhood. In autumn, the light is coming up from the Southwest, so I focused on two-point perspective shots on the streets closer to the water.

these pictures made me a bit seasick....

how bout using a ladder? they are all tilted back....

a ladder wouldn't help- even one that was ten feet long. to avoid the tilting back, you'd need to have the camera at exactly half the distance between the ground and the roof of the building, or about 25 ft for a four story structure.

what would help is a tilt shift lens, which i generally use with my night photography. it bends the light to prevent the convergence/tilting effect. however, it weighs a couple of pounds, so often i don't bring it on casual shoots like this one.

i could also use the perspective crop tool to fake the right angles, but honestly, who cares?
