50+ Examples of Impressive Tilt-Shift Photography (Part.1)


April 24, 2012PhotographyNo comments

“Tilt-shift photography” refers to the use of camera movements on small- and medium-format cameras, and sometimes specifically refers to the use of tilt for selective focus, often for simulating a miniature scene.Sometimes the term is used when the shallow depth of field is simulated with digital post-processing; the name may derive from the tilt-shift lens normally required when the effect is produced optically.

“Tilt-shift” encompasses two different types of movements: rotation of the lens plane relative to the image plane, called tilt, and movement of the lens parallel to the image plane, called shift.

Tilt is used to control the orientation of the plane of focus (PoF), and hence the part of an image that appears sharp; it makes use of the Scheimpflug principle. Shift is used to adjust the position of the subject in the image area without moving the camera back; this is often helpful in avoiding the convergence of parallel lines, as when photographing tall buildings. The outcome can be fascinating and impressive, giving typical theme and scenes a unique look.

There are many ways to show aggression photography and some are much more exclusive than others. Here in this collection, I have gathered for you an eye-catching collection of Tilt-shift Photography and Pictures taken by a variety of artists. Hope you like this technique of photography and you can inspire also when you viewing these  pictures. Have fun…:)
