Exploring Photography… Tilt Shift
Tilt-shift is a process that creates photographs that look like miniatures or dioramas. The process includes; blurring parts of the photo to simulate a shallow depth of field (making the scene seem much smaller than it actually is); and taking the photograph from a high angle. The blurring can be done either optically when the photograph is taken, or by digital postprocessing.
These photographs create a fun little world, that makes you feel like Gulliver in Lilliput.
Fine art photographs should be preserved by mounting on acid-free backing, and framed behind UV glass. Photographs should be kept out of direct sunlight to prevent damage to the image.
Below are some wonderful Tilt Shift photographs. As with all of my featured art/artists these are pieces I would purchase for myself or as a gift.
