The beauty of Tilt Shift

Tilt-shift photography has only come to my attention in the last six months. Indeed you may have heard of it but you may not know what it means. Well the term “tilt shift” basically means the use of tilt for selective focus, often producing images that look like scale models or toys. Sometimes it also means when the shallow depth of field is used after the image has been taken using image processing software.

So why do I love this form of photography? Well as you will see from the selection of some of the best examples, shown below, the effect really does give images magical perspective.






These images are my favourites from the images shown on

Here are a few examples of how i’ve used tilt shift to give a landscape perspective.
