A couple of years ago, I discovered this amazing photography technique called tilt-shift. While looking for cool websites, I ran into a website by world-renowned photographer Vincent Laforet who was doing tilt-shift with sporting events and giving them a new unusual look. With tilt-shift, it makes things shot at a distance look like miniatures. I was fascinated by how it gave ordinary boring photos a completely new dimension.
After doing a little online research, I ran into some videos, made by Keith Loutit, using the same tilt-shift effect and was blown away. I thought they were some of the coolest short videos I’d ever seen. So, of couse, I had to copy him. While my effort isn’t as good as his, I came close. I need to speed up my frame rate for the time-lapse and I’ll get there. I imagine he’s got an intervalometer just firing away at the fastest rate his camera will give him.
Here is my first attempt at a tilt-shift video:
