My friend Jason (obviously an avid One Floor Up reader) is feeding by miniature obsession with these tilt shift videos by Keith Loutit. Tilt shift is a photography technique used to make real life photos appear like scaled models, or miniatures. The technique distorts the depth of field through blurring, making the image appear as though it was taken using a macro lens.
Keith Loutit is one of the best at applying tilt shift to video. He actually combines tilt shift with time lapse photography to tell miniature stories. He has his own dedicated Vimeo channel. Most of the videos are part of a series called Little Sydney which features a new video each month, all shot in Sydney Australia. (Thanks Jason!)
