Tilt-shift photography, normally done with an actual tilt-shift lens, alters the depth of field of what you're capturing, allowing you to emphasize certain objects in the photo. This effect can easily be imitated using Photoshop, or more easily with an app like Instagram. It isn't true tilt-shifting (some call it tilt-shift faking), but it's very similar to it. The resulting effect blurs the setting around your chosen subject, making the subject look small and toy-like. Pretty simple, right? Simple, but you don't want to tilt-shift just any photo. So, we're going to show you how to produce beautiful tilt-shift images!
