Awesome Tilt Shift Photos from Around the World
It’s been a while since we first published our photo essay of awesome miniatures from around the world. We had good intentions to publish a second post shortly afterwards, but that seems to be well over a year ago. Who knew having a baby would be so time consuming?!
The miniature effect is achieved by combining heavy saturation and sharpness with “over blurring” to the areas that are out of focus. In photography circles, this technique is called ’tilt-shift photography’. Although we must confess that we created the effect using photo editing software, not with our actual camera and lens. Old school photographers will call us cheaters, but we’re okay with that – we have fun making these photos.
We hope you like them!
