<< press release >> TILT-SHIFTING
On the internet a lot of examples have been floating around of a relatively new photography phenomenon called "Tilt-shifting".
Photographers who take photos of real scenes and make them looks like miniature sets.
One example is Olivo Barbieri, who's work can be seen here: [link]
And has been described as: "Detailed scale models, except they're not. Strange photographs of places using a technique that makes them look like small model dioramas. Truly amazing images."
Local digital artist/cartoonist eRiQ Quaadgras has done some research online and found a way to emulate this effect,
that normally needs a specific lense, by recreating the effect using Photoshop on his computer.
Taking photos from his personal digital library, he has come up with the series of shots below.
Having send them to friends, he has received some great reactions.
Local MoreFM D.J. Jolene James replied: "That is very cool!!! I like it!!! It's a mini work of art!"
She mentioned it on air and placed one of the images on their website. ( [link]
A larger variety of eRiQ's images (20) can also been seen on his online image gallery - [link]
