Tilt-Shift Photography

Do you know what it is? I figure all you creative people who read my blog could probably really appreciate this new art form.

Tilt-shift photography (as far as I can grasp it) refers to the use of tilt for selective focus, so that you end up with what appears to be a miniature scene… turning real people, items, and places into what looks like a scene from a doll house.

Here’s is the example from the wiki page on the subject:



Now check out this whole YouTube video of tilt-shift photography of a carnival in Rio.



The parade starts at 2:20… you have to see these little animated dolls doin’ their thing. 

I’m intrigued by things (other than drugs) that alter our perception.

“When I was five years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told them they didn’t understand life.” -- John Lennon
