Tilt shifting is a technique in photography and also an after-effect of photoshopping that makes subjects within the captured frame look as if they were miniatures.

The final effect combined with a toned up saturation of colors usually produces a pleasing image like a child drawn to colorful toys. To produce a tilt-shift video, a series of time-lapse high resolution images are seamlessly sewn together to achieve a work of poetry in motion.

 

This tilt-shift video of New York by Aero Film director Sam O’Hare is definitely a good example of the technique, capturing the beauty of NYC in its quasi-miniature form.
