Tilt-Shift Your World

Amazing miniature detail, you're thinking? Amazing and detailed - yes; miniature - no!

I've posted before about miniature art that's disconcertingly real, or that makes use of optical illusion to great effect. Well here's a twist that turns that whole thing on its head: tilt-shift photography. It's a unique art that uses camera lenses and Photoshop to make life-size locations or subjects look like miniature models. A shallow depth of field and high color saturation are key to creating the illusion.

About Me

My Photo
Griffins, traditionally, are Guardians. Often carved at temple doors in ancient times, they were said to guard the way to Wisdom. I, on the other hand, seem to be the Guardian primarily of odd bits of string, pinecones, scraps of paper, mismatched socks, old calendars, homeless imps and gnomes, pencils with no erasers, jokes nobody gets, forgotten gods, keys with no locks, and other people’s lighters. If any of these things might be of use to you, let me know.
