Tilt Shift - I love it!

Today I have learnt something new about photography that it so awesome I wanted to share it with you. Actually I made myself a promise long time ago that I will improve my skills every day and today was THE DAY when I discovered something really C O O L! It was like a great X-mas present! This technique is called `tilt shift` and can be achieved with either specific TS lens or with the help of Photoshop. It helps make the subject look really miniature in the frame.

Look at Alex and Tim, it seems like they are in the land of giants! :):)
See how small Tim seems to be among hoodoos?

I know for sure I`ll be playing with it more often now!

Thanks so much! I so hope to practice this technique more often! Now I can't wait to buy a real TS lens.:))

This is the craziest thing I've ever seen! So cool. I look forward to giving it a try soon. In my quick internet search on the subject your photos rule - much better than any others I've seen.

Love your Tilt Shift photos! I found a free action at Rita's Coffe Shop blog that can mimic this look.
