  1. Rokinon Tilt-Shift 24mm f/3.5 Lens

    tilt-shift-lens

    The Rokinon tilt-shift 24mm f/3.5 lens is a wide-angle, full frame lens that allows both shift (+/- 12mm) and tilt (+/- 8.5°) adjustments.  This EF-mount lens is popular for architectural work, as well as adding a dreamy focus look to photos and video. It’s also useful for making real life look miniature, with a very distinct plane of focus.

    Usually, we find shooters using this lens at pretty narrow apertures, to regain some control over focus and keep the focal plane extra sharp.  Our tests put the sweet spot for this lens in the f/8 to f/11 range.  The minimum focus distance of 22 cm makes for some creative possibilities with macro, as well.

    The Rokinon tilt-shift lens is also sold as Samyang or Bower.  The front filter threads are 82mm.  The lens is fully manual.

    The AlienBees B400 studio flash with 32″x48″ softbox is one of our favorite ways to light portraits and still life.   The stepless slider adjusts power from 160 ws all the way down to 5 ws and the softbox makes for flattering soft flash with gentle shadows.

    We include a PC sync cable and 8-foot light stand.

    If you prefer a “naked” AlienBees flash unit, we rent those, too.

  3. AlienBees B400 Flash Unit

    alienbees-b400

    The AlienBees B400 is a powerful photography tool when you need the versatility of an off-camera flash and enough power to light over distances, large rooms, or multiple subjects.  The stepless slider adjusts power from 160 ws all the way down to 5 ws. One or two of these is often all you need for large group shots.

    We rent ours out with the standard reflector, 15′ cable, heavy-duty stand, and an AC cable.  A softbox and umbrellas are also available.
