    Default Tilt shifting

    What an excellent photography technique!

    It just looks like a blurry boundary surrounds the shots!

    You could do that in Photoshop.

    But it makes the subjects look like they are toys!

    The top few definitely do, but I think they would without the blurring too... they put me in mind of artists impressions of a building project type imagery.

    Can you make toys look real?

    That's the point, they wouldn't, it's just a normal scene.

    It's very clever you see.

    That's fucking genius, they got a toy, then made it look real by sticking strings on it, all using photography! Why has nobody thought of this before?

    No proof, therefore I shall maintain my belief :P

    Unless there's something other than the peripheral blurring to this technique, then you're talking kahunas, my good man.

    Yes, I think so.

    It would appear that peripheral blurring, increasing the contrast, and increasing the saturation are all it takes.

    With other optional things like taking from an elevated position etc. can add to the effect.

    I might have a play with some pictures in Photoshop.

    The technique is to do with the perspective of the shot, the type of lense used and srewing something off the camera.

    These are a little better

    However it's achieved, it's a decent effect!

    Aye, the lense just does the peripheral blurring... it would appear the elevated position of the shot is what delivers the best effects.

    I just fiddled with this photo, not the best choice being taken low down, and with a fairly close-up shot of the driver on the tram giving away the non-toyness of it.

    I'm looking for a better picture now

    I can see the effect beginning to work, but it's not great!

    I might take some pics on Saturday at the match and play with them.

    T'was very quick - I think graduating the blur would help, and possibly even more contrast.

    Ultimately it was a poor choice of starting picture, though.

    I did notice the distinct line between blurred and not blurred.

    I think a decent photgraph with that effect applied and blown up would look quite good on the wall.

    I wonder if the same princple applies to black and white photos.

    Really want to buy a 'proper' camera and take up photography.

    Okay, another quick attempt. Col's quite into photography, I noticed he's quite good on people shots of getting the background/foreground out of focus drawing attention to whatever it is he wants to be the focal point of his pictures.

    I've retained before and after for this one... think I went overboard with the saturation on this one...

    Even though it's not a great subject for 'toyification', it does make the photo much more interesting!

    Was the from the Empire State building? Was quite poor visibility when I was up there.
