What is Tilt-Shift Photography?

What is Tilt-Shift Photography?

Tilt-Shift photography refers to the use of camera movements on small- and medium-format cameras, and sometimes specifically refers to the use of tilt for selective focus, often for simulating a miniature scene.

Fifth Artist Announced: Bryan Solarski

With great enthusiasm we want to announce that Bryan Solarski will be the 4th artist in the Tilt-Shift America Project!

I have admired Bryan's "Little World" series for years, having seen it countless times on other tilt-shift blogs featuring the best tilt-shift photos.  But, it was when I saw the "Little World" series on Jen Bekman's Hey Hot Shot website I felt validated in my love of Bryan's work, and it was at that moment I decided to create the Tilt-Shift America project.  Thanks for being in the show Bryan, you among a small group of masters in the tilt-shift world.

Artist's Statement:

The aesthetic goal is to have the images look like miniature scenes through the Tilt-shift style of photography.  By doing this, the images become more vivacious and inviting. This allows the viewer to rediscover the locations.  Representing the locations this way enables the viewer to reconnect with childhood by recalling the feeling of living in a smaller world where scale seemed less cumbersome.  Viewers can recall creating scenes of playing with Lego’s or action figures. These images are reminiscent of childhood memories in hopes of inspiring a playful and innocent feature from that time frame into my images.
