Does Anybody Remember Tilt-Shift?

Funny how quickly things pass. But I still love tilt-shift. My method for creating fake tilt-shift images is very, very simple and fast. Just go to Bing maps and select Bird's Eye view, then blur all but an oval of the image. Time it took to make this image of Gießen, Germany, (one of my homes on my childhood tour of the world growing up as an Army brat) was about 1 minute total. (Click for a better effect)

  • There's an iphone app called tiltshift generator. Basically instagram with selective focus and more variations in the settings. Works especially well with high angle building shots (like from the 25th floor window of your posh hotel)

  • There's an awesome example of tilt-shift photography in the video created around the beautiful Central Coast of CA:

  • Luckily it only took you one minute, because it doesn't look good or effective at all.

    The edges need to be feathered more. Let's try to keep the standards high!
