Freelensing - What the Whaaat???

Freelensing, the poor mans tilt shift. 

After owning the Lensbaby Tilt shift lens for over a year as it sat on the shelf collecting dust I sold it... Now, fast forward 4 years and NEW glasses. I'm ready to try again! But, since we are renovating the studio I'm just not feelin the $500 on buying another tilt-shift and decided to try the DIY hack version with an old 50mm 1.8 lens, I already own.... About $80 ;)
