"This isn't something you'll often do for work or a real
project, but it's fun and it can look cool. Tilt shifting a photo
is something that can be done by expensive fancy camera equipment
or, fortunately for us, free software.
"The idea is that when you take a photo of small scale objects
like model towns, part of what reveals them as miniature is the
difference in focus. When a camera is up close to small objects, it
can't focus on other nearby objects, making them blurry. Tilt
shifting is applying this blur effect deliberately, to make
large-scale objects appear small. Getting it just right can take a
lot of time and effort, but the basic method is quite simple, and
that's what we're covering today."
