The Beauty Of Tilt Shift Photography - Now even as Music Video!!!

It's all REAL! A short depth of focus is important to trick our minds - photo by www.cityshrinker.comTilt shift photography plays tricks with your mind - you look at a photo of a model train set - only to realise it is actually all REAL life people and trains and cars - BUT they look like toy models!!!

You can create this effect by using some clever in-camera and/or Photoshop tricks: Adding some shallow depth of focus -  plus also the right angle and light and the subject itself are key to this technique. If you wanna know how click here>>


Also the angle, light and object need to be right - to make the trickery work.

There are quite a few photographers out there doing this. Here is a page with 50 examples - some are good some others don't quite work - which shows that the technique is not that easy to get right.

Today I saw for the first time that someone used Tilt Shift in a video! It's absolutely gorgeous!

This guy Keith Loutit mastered to adapt this style in motion pictures by adding a stop-motion effect on the filmed material and also by adding the same Photoshop effects afterwards. Here some of his incredible videos:
