We’ve been experimenting with tilt shift for a while now.
Tilt-shift photography is basically using your camera to make the photo taken seem miniature.
You could spend hours with camera movements, selective focus, shallow depth of field, a tilt-shift lens, rotation of the lens plane relative to the image plane, “tilt”, movement of the lens parallel to the image plane, shift…
Or you can try the cheats way and use this website. Tiltshiftmaker.
It makes the whole process easier, however you still need the right type of photo to get a decent effect. Start with stills, and you may be able to take the next step in to motion minis.
A great example of a tiltshift film, is one of Budapest, where we were for the eTwinning event:
Talking of Vincent, have a peak at Van Gogh’s art after the tiltshift treatment.
A pretty detailed description of how to do Tiltshift “for real” can be found at the Cambridge in Colour website. However, as well as Tiltshiftmaker, you could also try the slightly more detailed Art and Mobile Tiltshift Generator which is now also available for the iPhone.
