Playing with Tilt-Shift Focus
Tilt shift photography usually involves an expensive lens that enables the camera to “tilt” the focus to create a tiny depth of field. It is often creates an artificial perception of miniturization, for example this photo from last year’s Tour de France. I’ve always enjoyed these images, but the resources have always been out of reach. I’ve been playing around in photoshop and have found I can greatly improve bland images by artifically narrowing the focus. Going through my archives, I’m hopefully going to dedicate the next week to tilt-shift images.
