Tilt Shifting Straight to My Heart

Tilt shifting is the art of using a special lens, usually used by architecture photographers, to create incredibly shallow depths of field in images. The resulting images look like they’re of miniatures, rather than full size subjects.

Unfortunately real tilt shift lenses cost an insane amount of money, even old M42 and K mount ones, but you can still try this using technique with Dennison Bertram’s homebrew solution. You can also Photochop the same effect, but where’s the fun?

My favourite use of this effect is in Metal Heart below; just like Micro Machines but, y’know, awesomer. Check out Keith Loutit’s other videos. The man has a sharp eye. Also, great music track.
