Tilt-Shift and Catching Up

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.
