"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.

When a camera is up close to small objects, it can't focus on other nearby objects, making them blurry.
