Friday Photo by Karen Strunks

This week I thought I would have a little play around with tilt shift photography. Tilt shift photography makes regular scenes look like they are miniature scaled models.

I took a photo of the canals along Broad Street and added a little digital magic to get the above result. I followed the step by step instructions on this website.  Here is the ‘before’ photo for comparison.

It’s possible to create tilt shift effects within the camera when taking photos, but it’s also very easy to do digitally with some photo editing software such as Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro. If you haven’t got any photo editing software, I can recommend something like Sumo. It free and has tons of features too!

Photography is about experimenting and getting creative, and it’s great to have fun trying out new techniques such as tilt shift.

Have a great weekend! :)
