Gallery: 27 fantastic examples of tilt-shift


Tilt-shift is a popular style of photography that has increased in popularity in recent years. Taking pictures of images from a height or at a distance with a tilt-shift lens gives the illusion that large subjects are small and toy-like.

We realise that tilt-shift lenses can be expensive, so we’ve provided a tutorial on how to fake a tilt-shift effect using Photoshop Elements. Why not try it out for yourself? In the meantime, we’ve put together a gallery of 27 of our favourite tilt-shift photographs, some of which were created using Photoshop.
