Cool tilt-shift effect vid
 
At times, I'd swear it was a miniature set.




Kinda funny with things that should be huge like monster trucks too.

Saw this last week, great effect the new tilt shift lenses bring to time lapse photography!

Not being a smart ass. but I don't know enough about it to explain it, but if you google it, there are lots of explanations/examples.

The lenses aren't cheap, and I have been spending my money on the car lately so my camera gear has been put on hold for a while.

However, I did upload my on track footage!

Ive alwasy thought of it as kinda gimmick. As much as I like experimental photography, I always stayed a purist at heart.
I think it would be more viable to me if it wasnt so over-done, especially recently.

I do like playing with my lens baby, but not in this way. I use it much more subtly.

I'm the opposite....I've got sucked into photography and now the car is suffering :giggle: Those tilt shift lenses are cool, but I got about $10,000 worth of other shit I want before one of them lol

Braineack 10-27-2010 05:32 PM

they can be used for practical purposes too, for framing and image distortion correction.

Kinda neat to see video of tilt-shift. It doesn't bother me when it's done good/right. Those lenses are EXPENSIVE...which is why not many people have the real thing. It also takes a good understanding of DOF to do it well in post processing...but I digress.
The monster truck stop-motion one is awesome.



Yeah, it's only the exaggerated tilt-shift that gives the 'model effect'. A better use of a good tilt-shift is getting a awesome shot from a wide angle (like a 10-22mm) but without the distortion (using a tilf-shift wide angle lens).

I played around in PS a while back making a similar effect. I was actually thinking more along the lines of simulating the effect you get with a long focal length and a large aperture across a big area, in that the depth of field isnt really very small, but the background is far away enough that its still blown out.

I basically just did a gradient of increasing levels of a gaussian blur overlapping each other. I didnt even bother masking off anything which is why there is the halo around the car, andI didnt really do it as cleanly as I could, but w/e, its a car in a publix parking lot, certainly not art, haha.

Tilt-shift is cute.

I was playing with DOF on one picture early this year and came up with this...

...which brought me to doing this.

Damn... I need a tilt... for the record I think lens babies are over priced and a waste of time... thankfully canon just dropped in price with the ts-e 24mm and 45. I really like your guys photos of the cars using the tilt shift =)

hustler 02-17-2011 10:19 PM

I want a tilt-shift camera for in-car footage.

Andifer 02-17-2011 10:21 PM

it's a lens you buy for your D-SLR

hustler 02-17-2011 10:22 PM

Looks like a fun project! I really liked the headlights flipping up and down!

Andifer 03-15-2011 07:53 PM

it was a lot of fun.. I wish I had it for a few more days. after I shot the car in the snow I sent the lens back went home and uploaded the photos then realizing how awesome it turned out I wanted to go back out but the lens was gone =/
