Create a Tilt-Shift Effect


Tilt-shifting, or sometimes referred to as miniature faking, can create some eye popping visuals that seem to defy reality. The tilt-shift effect is most often used in architectural photos and portraits for its ability to create a stark and ultra-sharp contrast between the object of focus, and the background. Photographers create a tilt-shift effect with specialized lenses and specific camera movements. You don't need a large amount of expensive gear to achieve a similar effect though. Watch the video tutorial above to learn how to recreate the tilt-shift effect in a matter of minutes. Try it out on photos of city life and buildings, or experiment with your own ideas!

In this tutorial you will learn:

  • How to use Selective Focus
  • How to isolate your focus and choose its gradient.
