TiltShift Maker: Give your Photos the Tilt Shift Miniature Effect

Tilt-shift photography refers to the use of camera movements on small- and medium format cameras. In many cases, it refers to tilting the lens relative to the image plane and using a large aperture to achieve a very shallow depth of field. The technique relies on the Scheimpflug principle and usually requires the use of special lenses. This is often called Tilt Shift Miniature Faking.

tilt-shift-maker-logoTiltShift Maker is a web app that gives your photos the Tilt Shift Effect. The app is mostly powered by open source software where a custom written photo processing software produces an efficient lens blur technique that simulates the shallow depth of field produced by macro photography shots. That blur technique produces an image that appears to be of a miniature scale model. See the samples below.

This is another great web app that you can use to have some fun with your photos. No need to study the special Tilt Shift Technique or use Photoshop to make your photos look like miniature model photographs. Just upload your photo and let TiltShift Maker handle the rest.The app does not intend to replace the flexible image blur functionality present in dedicated photo packages, however it should give you an easy way to try out the tilt-shift effect for your photos.

  1. I think you’ll still need to get a special lens just to get the tilt effect. I’ve seen some DIYs using old lenses from non digital SLRs. It’s pretty cool actually but this is a lot easier. Lot easier than Photoshop even. 😉 Thanks for the visit Reggy 🙂
