Understanding Tilt Shift
For years I’ve admired this trend in photography and videography that makes the subject look like toys or models – anything but real.

Apparently the effect can be achieved with a tilt shift lens on your camera – or you can create the effect in Photoshop. I’ve made my first attempt. I have to say, living 26 floors above midtown gives me the right height, but I still need to work the angle a bit.
