Shift 8 mm
The Pre-Shift

So-called converging lines which happen when shooting from the ground are often unwanted in architectural photography. A firmly built-in pre-shift of the lens of 8 mm helps in many cases to avoid such perspective distortions. This pre-shift will also offer other benefits: The horizontal line is displaced down thus dividing the format ideally; 2/3 sky, 1/3 ground.
When placing the camera upside down the image gains depth in the foreground and the shift works as fall instead of rise.
