Tilt-Shift Photography

Tilt-shift photography is a technique using selective focus. The camera is manipulated so that a life-sized location or subject looks like a miniature-scale model. This can be achieved optically by using a special lens or can be done digitally in post production.

Ken Loutit is a photographer and film maker from Sydney. He used tilt -shift techniques to create his 'Small Worlds Project' in which he documented some of the world's great cities as if they were miniature models. The film shown here is part of that project and shows the 2011 Carnival in Rio de Janeiro (music is by Jarbas Agnelli). Find out more about Ken Loutit's work by visiting his website.
