Tilt-shift photography effects: 05 Sideways tilt

Similar to the toy town effect, this relies on the extremely shallow depth of field, but instead of tilting the lens up you rotate it and tilt it to one side.

This is perfect for shooting scenes where there are objects that are the same distance from the camera at either side of the frame.

By tilting the lens sideways you can then throw the subject on one side of the frame out of focus, while keeping the subject on the opposite side sharp.
