as I was browsing the interwebs today, I came a cross a very cool DIY project at http://www.diyphotography.net/ it was actually a mod by a photographer named Maciej Pietuszynski .
In this this DIY photography project, you will be able to learn how to bring life back to your old 50mm 1.8 lens and make it into a tilt shift lens. By any means, don’t buy a new 50mm 1.8 just to complete this DIY tiltshift lens project. If you have an old Nikkor 50mm 1.8 or a Canon equivalent that’s collecting dust in your thinktank camera bag, then you need to check out this out and give it a try. http://www.diyphotography.net/how-to-give-an-old-nifty-fifty-a-new-life

This DIY looks pretty intense so give yourself enough time to complete. This is surely no weeknight project.
