How to Create Real Life Tilt Shift Photography

red car

How do you make real-life tilt shift photography? Well, design studio Skrekkøgle, based in Norway launched a project named Big Money. A giant replica 50 cent Euro coin was made—and then placed next to real vehicles and settings. The whole effect looks similar to miniature tilt shift photography. The image above shows one of the final shots.

    This is brilliant, and quite mind boggling. The objects genuinely look like miniatures. Are we sure they’re not? 🙂

    Well, I assume they are. I think the photos are very “miniature realistic”, with an obviously selected blurring applied.

    Thanks for the comment…
