The Modern Photographer

If you saw the movie The Social Network, you may or may not have noticed the type of lens that was used during the rowing sequence. What they used was called a tilt-shift lens, which simulates a miniture scene. "'Tilt-shift' actually encompasses two different types of movements: rotation of the lens plane relative to the image plane, called tilt, and movement of the lens parallel to the image plane, called shift."

So for fun, here are some photographs of horses that were taken with a tilt-shift lens or were given the tilt-shift effect in photoshop.

Images were found:


Purchase a tilt-shift lens HERE (They are pricey)

In my photography class last year, my friend was talking about a tilt-shift lense. I never looked at any tilt-shift pics until now; love that first one!

I love tilt-shift lenses but for those of us who can't really justify the cost to add one to our kit, there are also ways of using PS to make an image look like it was taken with a T/S lense :) This is my favourite tutorial: http://www.tiltshiftphotography.net/photoshop-tutorial.php
