The curious tiltshift effect


This is a fake tiltshift effect, done on a normal photo I took in Quebec City. You can make your own online (for free) using tiltshiftmaker.com (Thanks for the link, Brian.) You can click the image to see a larger version.

See how it tends to make things look like miniatures? The fake-it process works better on some photos than others, but it’s strange, isn’t it?

Here is the same shot, unprocessed.


I first became aware of tiltshift photography when Sam Javanrouh began experimenting with it. The real camera effect is stronger than the fake one …especially in the hands of a photographer like Sam.

Here is the effect at work in video…
