 Post subject: Tilt/Shift and sports
PostPosted: Fri Jun 08, 2007 6:03 pm 
I have been into tilt/shift effect for some time now I really find it fascinating so I thought I would share a link with you that shows it in use at sport events. Never thought about it in that context but would definitly try it out some time.

A Really Big Show - New York Times

I don't own a tilt/shift lens but use photoshop to emulate it that gives ok result IMHO.[/url]

Great link Rune - thanks for that!

A really interesting video. I'd seen some of those photos (or something similar) at an exhibition so it was great to hear the photographer's viewpoint.

It's also startling to see them again - they look like miniatures or models.

I do really like tilt and shift effects, but have never bought one of the lenses or tried to emulate them digitally - could you show us some of your examples?

Anyway, thanks again for the link - feel free to post more of these!

Gordon

PS - anyone got a lensbaby? Affordable tilt and shifting...!

I have uploaded a couple of examples here. The problem is to get high enough so I will try to get up in the Arc de Triumphe in the near future to get better perspectives.

A simple non-illustrative guide to Photoshop T/S:
1 Add a B/W gradiant alpha channel
2 Use lens blur filter on the gradient alpha channel
3 Adjust curves to your likings to get the plastic look

So get it going, upload your T/S pictures here :)
