Beautiful Tilt-Shift Photography of Japan
Tilt-shift photography is a creative type of photography where the world look like its miniature. Tilt-shift Photography refers to the use of camera movements on small- and medium-format cameras, and sometimes specifically refers to the use of tilt for selective focus, often for simulating a miniature scene. Sometimes the term is used when the shallow depth of field is simulated with digital post-processing the name may derive from the tilt-shift lens normally required when the effect is produced optically.
Tilt-shift actually encompasses two different types of movements: rotation of the lens plane relative to the image plane, called tilt, and movement of the lens parallel to the image plane, called shift. Tilt is used to control the orientation of the plane of focus (PoF), and hence the part of an image that appears sharp; it makes use of the Scheimpflug principle. Shift is used to adjust the position of the subject in the image area without moving the camera back; this is often helpful in avoiding the convergence of parallel lines, as when photographing tall buildings.
Japan has been hit by tsunami after quake. We all are sad for this disaster and pray for the people of Japan. Below we present Beautiful Tilt-Shift Photography of Japan. Definitely these photos were taken before the recent earth quake and tsunami.
