Large format photography is probably the most technical and methodical process of all methods of shooting, but you're rewarded with prints that have mind-blowing renderings and resolution. Along with that technical process come some pretty unique powers, however. This video shows off one such capability and how it helped the photographer realize his creative vision.
Coming to you from Ben Horne, this video highlights how the technical capabilities of an advanced large format camera afford the shooter the ability to solve some very practical problems. In this video, Ben talks about rear tilt, in which the back of the camera is angled. By doing this, the image projected from the lens is stretched at one end (the end farther from the front of the camera) and compressed at the other (the end closer). This means that one can make the background appear larger and the foreground smaller or vice versa, allowing one to emphasize different elements of the composition as desired. The same trick can be done to the sides of the composition via rear swing, which is a horizontal tilt. While large format photography is highly involved, the complete control it offers the photographer is pretty tantalizing.
