Site of the Day

I don't know if I'll do this on a regular basis, maybe just when I find stuff. I always though blogs that had regular features were cool.

So, today's site is http://tiltshiftmaker.com/photo-processing.php . With it, you can make your own tilt-shift photographs.

What is a tilt-shift photograph? Well, to get the answer, lets go to Wikipedia:

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 concept can be duplicated by selectively making an image out of focus, which is called miniature faking. http://tiltshiftmaker.com/photo-processing.php can help you do this to make pretty cool pictures of landscapes and environments.
