Photography

A dramatic example of photographic slight-of-hand: a tilt-shift movie

Whether you call the technique "miniature faking" or "tilt-shift" the idea is to selectively blur sections of an image to simulate the shallow depth of field you'd see in a close-up photograph. In this case, the image is in motion.

When you adjust the focus and speed up the film, the effect is mesmerizing.
