Rainbow Tilt ShiftI’ve trained my eye to spot photos that can be easily tilt-shifted. A few of them I found by searching for tags like “birdseye” on Flickr. To see the original photos, click on a photo and then follow the link to the original. Behold…
Mini Arrowhead Stadium

Mini Arrowhead Stadium.

Mini Bull Pen

Mini Bull Pen. Despite the scale of the subject, this one turned out even more convincing than some of the others.

Tilt Shift Parliament

The angle from which everyone that visits London has a photo of the Houses of Parliament…from the London Eye.

Mini 1980 Space Shuttle

The space shuttle from 1980, back when they painted it completely white. The painting idea was scrapped later on when they realized how much all that paint weighed, and how much more fuel they were using to get it all into orbit.

Shuttle Cart Tilt Shift

A later unpainted shuttle being wheeled from the same hangar pictured above. This is one of the more convincing miniatures.

Rainbow Tilt Shift

This one’s from my rainbow post recently.

Mini Bridal Veil Falls

Bridal Veil Falls in New Zealand.

  • It really is striking how realistically some of them resemble the little dioramas you see in hobby shops. I love this stuff.

  • These are excellent.

  • What they said. I am really impressed by and absolutely love these.

  • In that case, I’ll have you know that these are exceedingly painstaking and difficult to do. 🙂

    The waterfall one was the only time I’ve varied from the standard 3 step procedure. Normally the part in focus is just a horizontal band across the image, but for the waterfall there was foliage on the left that needed to be in the blurred foreground, so it required a little more thought and a few more seconds than the others.
