Most of you who follow my blog know about my love for photography. I’m just a armature now but, eventually want to prefect my skills and take more professional pictures. Lately I have been fascinated with a photo technic called Tilt-Shift. Tilt-Shift lenses focus on a single part of the photo and blur the surrounding area to create an optical illusion of miniaturized scenery. Real tilt shift lenses are very expensive, but a similar effect can be achieved using Photoshop. I played around with Photoshop the other day and this is what I have came up with. My picture doesn’t look like miniature model of Hong Kong but I like this effect a lot because it really draws the attention to me and smudges out all the other random people around that I felt kind of ruined the picture before. I’m sure much better results can be achieved and more close to the actual Tilt-Shift effect if you have the patients and you think its worth the effort. If you like to try, go on YouTube and type in Tilt-Shift Photoshop tutorial.
Have a great day! :) XOXO Nicky
