Like the entire universe, I’m fascinated by tilt shift photography.
The first time I encountered it was in a friend’s photo stream on Flickr:
And then I started seeing it everywhere!
So of course, I want to make cute miniature photos, too! How can I get me on that bandwagon?!
I could buy myself a nice new lens. For $1,400.00.
Or I could jerry rig a hand made lens. But that smacks of effort.
But you knew that prohibitive cost and effort wouldn’t keep me down, right? Right.
Because there’s an app for that.
I had tried using this application a couple of times before, but always with the wrong sorts of pictures, and not very interesting results. It just won’t work right when the images are of something relatively close. Apparently, high up views looking down on a scene are good ones to work with.
And now wondering if there’s roof access to the building here…
I’m coming up on my 4 year anniversary at my current job, so I made a book that shows the progression of my photography from when I started.
It’s hard to be objective about my own photos, but I think you can see where I started trying things, where I did a little learning and then a little testing of my own.
I still mess up a lot. I still kinda don’t know what I’m doing. But I am amazed at how much I think my photography has changed.
