I'm a sucker for tilt-shift... real or fake.

These are cool.

Most that you see are done in Photoshop. It's a simple process. The more traditional way is to use a view camera with front and rear tilt/swing motions. That's how mine are done.

Nice pictures. tilt/shift is one of those things I'd love to try with my D80, but I'm not even sure where to start. Do you need a special lense, or can you do it with normal lenses?

As Jehu was saying, there are certain types of cameras and lenses such as this which create the true effect. And it can be done in photoshop. More info here.

I would suggest using a Photoshop method. There is a very simple one that just uses a gradient quick mask followed by some lens blur (or gaussian blur). It's very effective but doesn't require a tiltable lens. I've seen many tutorials on it. Google is your friend.

You could get a lensbaby or something similar but I've never seen results from them that I liked. A view camera (I use a 4x5) is probably the only effective way to accomplish this without post-processing.

Post processed (Photoshopped) tilt-shift miniatures are a legitimate art form. Have fun with it. Post your results here.

Insane
 
Hey these are really cool. I'm just starting to get into 4x5 work, so it's cool to see other people shooting that on the boards. Did you scan the film yourself or have the lab scan them?

Also, I'm curious to hear that you've never seen results you didn't like with a lensbaby. Optically, isn't it the same thing going on, with the exception of 1) smaller format and 2) tilting the lens plane as opposed to perhaps film plane?

Thanks Amano.

I have an Epson V750 scanner. It seems to be the best for the money. After I bought it I found out that the local camera shop uses one to scan their custom work. I'm happy with it and I found it on Ebay for about $400. I think it was returned merchandise.

It's hard to explain the Lensbaby thing. The front tilts but the back doesn't. When you get selective focus that way, it's hard to make a consistent strip across the shot. It puts a curve to it. Tilt miniature needs the compensation that you can provide by equally tilting the back. I hope that's understandable.

Anyway, have fun with the 4X5. It's very rewarding to work for each exposure. Where do you post your work?
