Tilt-Shift Photography

 I came across tilt-shift photography this past spring. Of course, my initial reaction was that I was looking at model trains and toy cars when in fact shallow depth of field and a special lens were tricking my eye. Tilt-shift photographs are usually achieved with aerial shots or high vantage points and the focus is very specific. High contrast around the central subject and blurred edges produce an optical illusion. Cars, trains, and people from a distance are ideal subjects to photograph. You can get this effect with Photoshop as well but MUCH cooler when done with the tilt-shift lens.
