Tilt-shift photography



Tilt-shift photography refers to the use of camera movements on small- and medium format cameras. In many cases, it refers to tilting the lens relative to the image plane and using a large aperture to achieve a very shallow depth of field. - source Wikipedia

I’ve seen a number of these types of photographs before some are done with expensive lenses and aothers are done with post-processing in applications such as Photoshop. Here are a few I recently saw on Funtasticus – I don’t have a list of the original photographers so cannot give credit. You can view more of them on the Funtasticus post.

    Looking at these hurts my eyes a bit. I take it that the blurriness is deliberate? Sorry I don’t have anything positive to say except that im sure the original photos were rather nice.

    @Galen – unfortunately the blurring out parts of the image is one of the things that is required to achieve that “scale model” look.
