I've always been a big fan of tilt-shift photography. But after watching the gorgeous, amazing, stunning, can't-get-enough-of-it Henley race scene in The Social Network last night, I decided I'd try my hand at creating some faux tilt-shift images.
My first attempt is not perfect, the line of focus needs to more accurately follow one plane, rather than going straight across the image. But it sure was fun!
Below is the original photograph (roughly cropped to the same size for better comparison). I normally don't share my straight out-of-the-camera shots, I think they can detract from the mood and magic of the final image. But in this case I thought you might enjoy seeing the difference!
