    I think I saw a tiny, tiny, abandoned factory

  4. Alan says:

    I wonder what kind of lens the photographer used to get such a narrow depth of field.

    • zjoske says:

      My Canon EOS60 has a software setting to do this

      They are called “tilt-shift” lenses (TS, if pictures were taken with Canon) or “perspective-control” lenses (PC, in Nikon case). The main point is that it allows you to tilt focus plane (usualy it is parallel to film/sensor).
      I would say, in this case, Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L lenses were used.

    This is incredible, could of fooled me.

    It is called TiltShift. There are free web apps where you can do it yourself.

    This effect has been done to death, but there are a few very images over the two pages.

  9. zipp says:

    It’s done on a ‘lens baby’, not a tilt and shift.

    But you can make the same effect from a standard shot in Photoshop. Just create duplicate layer, blur it and then carefully erase the parts you want sharp.

    Looks like these have been done in photoshop…

    The focal plane is not accurate and has been artificially created using a gradient mask in photoshop.

    Some of these work, but some are terrible.

    Orwellian perspectives.

  12. YJ says:

    Nice tilt shift photos, how does the photographer make it.

  13. alvarhillo says:

    Tiltshiftmaker rules.

    It’s amazing, truely amazing. Everything looks unusually like a diorama or miniature of he real thing.I do pratography and I am at a loss to find what this person did to make these pictures appear as they do. Other than a polarized and also brown/yellow tint filter, I’m unable to know Is there someone who knows, please speak to us.?

    Moscow looks so beautiful from above!

    I shall go there again.

  16. Mascha says:

    Alien Skin Bokeh software does the trick as well.

  17. Edouard says:

    Traditionally, you would use a tilt shift lens however with todays digital editing software this illusion can be accomplished very simply with some gradient blurs at the top and bottom of your image.
