Tilt Shift Photography

with 2 comments

So my friend Ryan at work showed me these pictures using a technique called tilt shift. Basically, it involves taking wide shots of things and using this technique that makes thing look like it’s a picture of a diorama rather than a real scene. It’s hard to explain, but it’s mesmerizing to look at.

I found this video on Vimeo. Yesterday there was one of a monster truck rally that was awesome but somehow that isn’t there anymore. Too bad, we were almost hyponotized by it. Anyway, there’s a few others this guy has posted and they’re all pretty interesting if nothing else. He also picks perfect tracks to accompany the video. You can check out other videos he’s done here.

  2. I think the pic you’re talking about might actually be a roller derby race. Somehow that makes it even cooler to me but maybe I’ve been living in the South too long…
