Playing with Tilt Shifts

Looking down on a street from above can look great.  However it can look better with a Tilt Shift.  Purchasing a Tilt Shift lens can get quite expensive ($2000) for Nikon and Canon.  There are cheaper ways of doing it, like Tilt Shift software and plugins.  You could also buy a Lensbaby: fun and under $300.

The least expensive way to do it is using tiltshiftmaker.comfree and handles a pretty nice JPG size.  The max JPG size is 6000 x 6000 pixels & 8MB.

Below you can see the original photo I took in Washington DC from the observation deck of the Newseum.  Below that you can see the tiltshiftmaker.com version.  I increased the shift effect a lot in this image but that is one of the nice things of tiltshiftmaker.com.  They give you flexibility for the same price of free.

So give the website a try since it is free.  You can’t lose.

Thanks for reading and happy shooting,

Scott
