I've just been checking out tilt shift photos on photobucket, they are amazing, everything looks like scale models.

It's really just an effect where the lens gives a very shallow depth of field where everything else looks blurry

:mental:

eeeeeee thank you Keith! I have ps7 i think that lozzy sent me so when i find it again i'll install it on the new laptop and give it a try!

it *looks* fairly simple, the instructions appear to be very user friendly so long as my copy does the samed as theirs!

That`s fantastic. I hadn`t heard of this effect before I read the opening post.
Thanks for the detailed explanation of how it`s done in Photoshop Keith. :thumbsup: [Something new to play with!]

it's amazing isn't it? bigthunder posted a tilt shift video from Magic Kingdom the other day and it was quite bizarre, but the more i see it the more i like it!

I love this technique! Never known what it was called though :yes: Thanks for sharing.

Anyone got a tutorial for how to do this without editing? I'd love to do one of the tort enclosure :yes:

Well you need a special lens Josh called a tilt/shift lens. Often used for architecture since it gets rid of the horrible converging verticals problem which people have when they try and point the camera up at a building.

So the editing in photoshop way is by far the most convenient.

You can make home made ts lenses but I'd advise sticking with photoshop tbh :lol:

There are some new compact cameras coming out with the effect built in now which is kinda cool

Ohhhh I didn't realise you needed a special lense! I'll stick with photoshop then!

here are my first attempts. took me a while! the tutorial said to use 'lens blur' which ps7 didn't have so i used gaussian blur instead.....they're not that great but it was fun trying!

woops! Didn't see that there was a 2nd set of photos. The one of the beach is my favourite. The others are really good but I think the setting of the beach one really lends itself to the style of the photo :yes: Thanks for sharing :hug2:
