I’m not the world’s best or most prolific photographer, but I know what I like to shoot and I know my limitations.
I’m also not one to over-process things too much or post-edit my work, but tiltshifting is the exception.
Thanks to tiltshiftmaker now anyone, me included, can make cool miniature-esque vignettes from their existing landscape photos.
Thinking of it like shooting a model train or cityscape through a Lomo or Poloraid.
It’s cool. Check out my meager results:
The original photo:
The source material isn’t bad, it’s actually the only shot of any city I have from such a high perspective.
I think to realize the full power of these shots you’ve got to follow the rule of thirds a little bit better and also be able to zero in on some fun action like people or cars to get the sense of fun scale.
Anyhow, it was a fun diversion for a Friday afternoon.
As always, I pledge to take more photos and upload them to Flickr. Hold your breath. ;-)
