Tilt Shift Maker

Inspired by the amazing street project Little People Blog, but don’t quite have the time to hand-craft tiny people? Well, Tilt-Shift Maker has a quicker, easier, and surprisingly effective alternative.

Tilt-shift refers to a photographic technique whereby a camera lens is tilted relative to the image plane and combined with a large aperture to create a shallow depth of field. The end result is a real photograph that looks like a scene created of miniature models. Tilt-Shift Maker is a web service that transforms existing digital images into tilt-shift style miniatures, and the result can be surprisingly effective.  Head over to the site, upload an image, select a focus area and bam – your ‘miniaturised’ image is ready to go.

Here’s a mini Bondi Beach I’ve just whipped up:

    So all that time I’ve spent making a miniature Bondi Beach was for nothing? Just joking 😀

    Nice find!
