'Toy Marina' 
This is one of my favourite tilt-shift shots from the recent open-door heli ride with +Trey Ratcliff Rene Smith and Sebastian Opitz. 
Featured in this frame is the entire length of Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Beach Residence, good chunk of Sheikh Zayed Road and Jumeirah Lake Towers. I took this shot at dusk with Canon 5Dmk3 and Canon TS-E24mm lens with high ISO setting. The scene was a lot darker than it appears in this photograph. 
Big thanks to Tom Lowe and Dubai Film Production.

'Between Heaven and Earth'

Captured during the most entertaining aerial shooting session I've ever done. Burj Khalifa, shot from the Bell 412 helicopter though an open door. Onboard the aircraft were Trey Ratcliff and Rene Smith who visited Dubai for the first time as well as the amazing Sebastian Opitz on behalf of Dreamcore. 
Many thanks to Tom Lowe and Dubai Film Production for making this shoot possible. 

I used Canon 5D Mk3 and Canon TS-E 24mm lens. 
EXIF: f4.0, 1/40s, ISO 4000

'Burj Mohamed Bin Rashid'; the tallest skyscraper in Abu Dhabi
I photographed this scene through the open door of an AgustaWestland AW109 helicopter with Canon 5D Mk 3 and Canon 8-15mm lens, set at 15mm

EXIF: f/7.1, 1/1000 sec, ISO 500

Post-processing: 15mm fisheye is as wide as it gets without getting half of the helicopter in the frame. I still got its rotor blades and landing wheel in the corners which took a while to paint out. 
I used Lightroom 5.1, Photoshop CC and Topaz ReStyle to finish this shot.

Always amazed at how this technique can make such a large city seem so small. I really need to try this sometime. It looks so fun.

jep i seen tamroon 15-30 reviews. There was no this tamron in 2013 :). But anyway i just noticed am staying from ~15-30 segment now I use them mostly for reportages or for high res, easy to shoot, panos at 24 or 35mm. Now i do mostly 8-15 for spherical or 50+ for gigapixel. Just zoom your lens N+5mm and your zoomed lens will beat all the reviews of Nmm :)Here is example what 100$ 50mm can do: http://professionalpanorama.com/esb_360_gigapixel_panorama/ :) so IMHO lens doesn't mutter much and tilt shift is a top "waste of money" :)

Introduction

Beno Saradzic

Photographer | Emmy Nominated Time Lapse Cinematographer | Visual Artist

Biography

Beno is a Slovenian born time lapse cinematographer, photographer and visual artist. He is currently based in Dubai, UAE.

 For 18 years, Beno has trained his eye in the art of seeing as a 3D Computer Animation and Architecture Visualization specialist. As a veteran digital artist, Beno won numerous accolades and awards such as the rank of 'Autodesk Master' as well as the winner of the prestigious 'Tektronix International Design Visualization Competition' in 1993. For his continuous contributions to the art of architectural visualization, Beno was given a 'Special Merit of Excellence' award by Kinetix / Autodesk in 2005. Beno's 3D generated art was published in several international architectural visualization publications and books such as the '3DS MAX 2008 Foundation'. Beno was also a contributing consultant for Michigan State University at the Department of Forensic Science.

In 2008, Beno started exploring new creative avenues which lead him to discover the world of photography and time lapse cinematography. Having a solid foundation and decades of practice in related types of visual arts, Beno’s transition to his newly found passion was a swift one. By 2011, he had dozens of photographs and time lapse films specially featured across local and international media and publications. His body of work is recognized for its use of light and composition, drawing strong influences from the classics of cinema and traditional art.

Beno's comprehensive portfolio is defined by his profound love for architecture, engineering, science and the beauty of nature. His vast knowledge of digital imaging technologies is evident in every photograph. As an individual accustomed to dramatic profession changes, Beno believes in the power of a life-long learning process and feeding the child-like curiosity throughout adulthood. He tirelessly experiments with fresh styles of photography while refusing to box himself in any particular genre. Keeping the broad and diverse subject matters in front of his lens is the secret sauce to creative liberty and inspiration.

His list of clients include BBC’s Natural History Unit, the Discovery Channel, Canon Middle East, Emirates Airline, Abu Dhabi and Dubai Governments and many others.

He has recently been nominated for an Emmy for his achievements in cinematography. He is also a Silver Dolphin Award winner of the prestigious Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards.

Beno shoots for major image libraries such as Getty Images, Alamy and Trevillion Images. As a photo educator, Beno frequently hosts photography workshops and inspiration seminars on time lapse photography, fine art photography and digital image post-processing. He is a frequently featured artist and has made numerous appearances and tutorials on various blogs such as 500px.com, Scott Kelby One, Trey Ratcliff's Variety Hour, Topaz Labs Blog and many others.
