Faking Tilt Shift
Since The first time I saw this type of photography, I fell in love with the way how cameras or lenses can make things look like miniatures. I watched a news on one of Australian TV channels, don’t remember which one and exactly when, reporting Mardi Gras Parade 2009 I think it was, that Keith Luitit created a time-lapse photography with this style so it looked like a group of toys marching. Super cool. More of Keith Luitit’s stunning Tilt Shift cinematography can be found here.
And I just found out the term of this photography type is ‘Tilt Shift’. Looking at the price of the lens to do this photography made me dizzy. I’m not that pro to invest some money for this TS lens. Then I searched tutorials for Fake Tilt Shift for GIMP, as I’m a Gimper and there are some Tilt Shift Generators as well that make it super easy to do. Here are the results :
All photos were taken during my 6 weeks holiday in July – August 2010 to Singapore – Indonesia by Irawan. Feel so lucky now that I have lots of images to practice my photographic post-processing techniques.
