These Tilt Shift photos have been created by adjusting the focal point in the frame or selectively focusing on a specific area. This causes the subjects in the photo to appear miniaturized. It is
somewhat of an optical illusion and has been traditionally done with a tilted lens when the photo is taken, but with digital photography it can be done in seconds with software.
I have been going back through many of my photos and playing around to see what interesting changes can be made.
