Tilt shift

Tilt shift photography is amazingly cool and somewhat technical to grasp. I barely know how to turn on my shower, but from what I've read it refers to the use of some sort of lens tilt and a large aperture to achieve a very shallow depth of field. Therefore, it makes things that are big appear in miniature when actually they are anything but.

What you see in these videos is real, not fake or miniaturized, not any kind of CGI wizardry. Keith Loutit is the creator of these videos and if I did drugs he would be my hero.
