I get a kick out of the tilt-shift effect. Recently browsing notcot.org, they had shown a site that allows you to create a tilt-shift effect via the web.

Tiltshiftmaker.com makes it real easy to do this yourself.

Here is a couple of mine.

I don't like this til shift. it is just too out of focus. It hurts my eyes. the trick of photography is to take the photograph so the the viewer will focus on what yaou want them to without having to resort to post processing tricks.

I still have it in my mind that someday I'll own a
large format technical camera where I can actually
tilt and shift the lensboard the film plane.

I'm such a Luddite. [Razz]

If I was that kind of a shutterbug, so would I. Definitely not a Luddite, but instead the eye of a craftsman.

I am far from being good at photography so amateurish is the best I can do. But the tilt shift effect is a blast to play with.

Until I started to see articles on tilt shift I would have sworn the opening of Dollhouse was shot with miniatures, but alas it was done with tilt shift. Very cool!

Here is a music video filmed with tilt shift

By the same token, my thought the first time I saw it was "cool...they're using tilt-shift!" [Razz] (But I'd already seen the collective interwebs fawn over tilt-shift before.)

I'm kind of tossed about tilt-shift myself -- when done well, it can be quite neat, but like Ash, I do like it when pictures are mostly in focus. :/ Still, it's a clever trick. [Big Grin]

Well I guess that I can poop can that 15 element lens for my SLR. Since no one wants a good depth of field any more, damn that lens was expensive.

traditionally tilt shift was done by actually dickering with the lens... nowadays like so much stuff most of it is done with software - and you get the best results there when the original is good and crisp with plenty of depth of field to mess about with

So I guess your expensive badass lens is still useful after all [Wink]

Tilt shift lenses are not cheap, so this looks like a cool way to get the effect without paying for it! [Smile]
