Photoshop Tilt Shift Tutorial by Alicia Bingham
I’ve created a tutorial in Photoshop, showing you how to tilt shift an image, giving it an optical illusion of being a miniature world. It’s a pretty neat effect that usually can only be achieved with a super expensive lens. However, tilt shifting in Photoshop allows the user to fake it, creating that same illusion without spending all the money for the lens.
I got the idea from this website. I really loved the images they had as examples. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to take as awesome of photos as this person did, but my hope is that someday I’ll be able to do so. I loved this effect since I first saw the images. It’s pretty sweet.
The image I used for this was taken March 21, 2014 from the Hinckley building at BYU-Idaho in Rexburg.
Here’s the PDF version of my tutorial, for those who just want a layout of the simple steps rather than watching the video.
