Tilt shifting


Photoshop can be a labour of love. Mostly it's never the easiest editing software to be playing with. I've been intrigued by tilt shifting photograph editing for a while and it's something I've tried a copy of times trying to attempt on photoshop with little or limited results. Then after searching google for some new tutorials and coming across this one - it seemed to fall into place. So I've ended up adapting some old photographs of York and one of Detroit at night to get me practising. I love how tilt shift makes the world look like a model and people as figurines that you could reach out, pick up and move around.

    1. I know, that's what makes it look so fun to me! Some of the tutorials out there can be really intimidating, but that one really explains it well. Hope you give it a go!
