New York Style Tilt-Shift

While I was in New York, I wanted to do some duplicates of the tilt-shift work I had already done. So this time, the photos I took for this purpose were taken specifically for the purpose of tilt-shifting them later in Photoshop. That meant getting subjects that would be interesting in miniature, and avoiding having horizon in my shot. Here's one:

Aperture: f/4.5
Shutter Speed: 1/40
ISO: 800
Focal Length: 32 mm

I'm a little disappointed in the focus—my AF was shooting through a glass window. But the effect turned out okay, and with a saturation bump, the object look more like toys, perpetuating the illusion.


  1. Very cool! I have yet to try this technique. I think it so much fun!

  2. Wow! They really do look like little toy people and cars! Well done!

  3. Excellent work, and choice. These are a lot of fun.
