Tilt. Shift. Van Gogh.

Have you ever heard of tilt-shift photography? You know those ads on television where the scene looks like it’s made up of little toys but it’s not? It’s done using a special lens but you can also get the effect using Photoshop. I have lots of links to read up on about it… I’m behind the eight ball here so I can’t give you any technical bizzo… (like my technical terms?) but LOOK what it can do!

These images from artcylopedia use the artwork of Van Gogh obviously. Nothing has been added to the pics. The effect has just been utilised to the max by people who know what they’re doing.

Pretty cool huh?

I have only put a few images up… thought you might like to trot on over to artcylopedia and see the rest of their clever, clever work first hand.  It is very, very good.

About gillianloves

I decided there was not enough laughing in my life so I set to and started to design greeting cards in addition to my other design work. I'm happy to make people smile and to show that giving something really good takes as little effort as sending something pretty ordinary. I fully believe that if you can laugh about it someday you may as well laugh about it today. And also that we are just about as happy as we try to be. But you should know, Pollyanna I'm not. Even I might want to slap her after a day or so.
