Tilt-shift photographyÂ refers to the use ofÂ camera movementsÂ on small- and medium format cameras. In many cases, it refers to tilting theÂ lensÂ relative to theÂ image planeÂ and using a largeÂ apertureÂ to achieve a very shallowÂ depth of field (wikipedia)
BeautifullyÂ crafted in Takayaki’s usual black aesthetic, TiltShift is an Adobe Air app for Mac, Windows and Linux. Using a simple set of controls you can quickly apply wonderful TiltShift effects to your photograph. Radius andÂ strengthÂ included, a number of different effects like saturation, contrast, brightness and vignetting have also been added.
We have already seen a number of tutorials on how to achieve this effect using Photoshop and on these groups onÂ MacRumors ,Â Flickr andÂ this group but besides the iPhone app (TiltShift – iPhone)Â there hasn’t yet been an app solely dedicated to generating TiltShift effect.
Takayaki has done a wonderful job. Whether you are a pro or a casual photographer,Â TiltShift should be a great new addition to your arsenal…and it’s free!
