Recently (as in the last year), I’ve discovered one of the coolest photo techniques I’ve seen in awhile. I’m probably behind the curve on this but tilt-shift photography is freakin’ amazing.
I’m sure there are a ton of technical things you could do with tilt-shift photography but the coolest are when the photos are made to simulate miniatures. The following video is one of the coolest examples I’ve yet seen of the tilt-shift technique applied to film. The filmmaker, Keith Loutit, also has several of short films on his Vimeo page worth checking out as well.
