Tilt Shift

Bathtub III from Keith Loutit on Vimeo.

This was done using a technique called 'Tilt Shift'. The basic theory behind it is that rather than the lens being parallel to the subject, the front element (piece of glass) is tilted to cause the focal point in the image to be very narr
ow but also wide. The end result is what you might expect to see from macro photography and when used in a landscape situation it looks like a diorama. I love the effect but not enough to dish out the £900 - £1000 asking price for the Nikkor lens.

Take the time to check out Chase Javis website. I think he's a very talented photographer.
