Tilt shift photography has been around for ages but has recently made a comeback as a popular way of shooting (or doing the effect in Photoshop). “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 postprocessing, but the name does come from tilt-shift lens normally required when the effect is produced in camera. We will do a tutorial on how to get a tilt-shift look in Photoshop later on but for now check out some great examples of tilt shift photography.
Also for anyone who wants to get this effect with your iPhone there is an awesome iPhone app out. It’s on our top 10 list of apps here: Top 10 list of photography iPhone apps.
