Tilt-Shift Revisited

Happy Friday everyone, and lets be honest, it really couldn’t have come quick enough.This weekend I hope to get out and try to capture some images for adding a Tilt Shift effect to. Start small and work toward a goal is my motto here. One day I might create something as magnificent as this;

Tilt-shift photography refers to the use of camera movements on small- and medium format cameras; it usually requires the use of special lenses.

“Tilt-shift” actually encompasses two different types of movements: rotation of the lens relative to the image plane, called tilt, and movement of the lens parallel to the image plane, called shift. Tilt is used to control the orientation of the plane of focus (PoF), and hence the part of an image that appears sharp; it makes use of the Scheimpflug principle. Shift is used to change the line of sight while avoiding the convergence of parallel lines, as when photographing tall buildings.

In many cases, “tilt-shift photography” refers to the use of tilt and a large aperture to achieve a very shallow depth of field.



If You Don’t Have The Equipment

If you have an image you want to give the tilt-shift effect to you can do it yourself following my easy tutorial



Or use a web based application ;

Adobe Air based app, TiltShift Generator







Short and sweet today, can’t wait to get out in the sun. Have a great weekend, see you Monday!
