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.

Tilt-Shift's Biggest: Vincent Laforet

Vincent Laforet: The biggest name in tilt-shift photography in the world right now.  I couldn't have a blog about tilt-shift, without mentioning the master.  Unfortunately, Vincent has been too busy winning photography prizes, working for the most circulated magazines in the world and being named as among the most influential photographers in the world to participate in the Tilt-Shift America project so far.

Make sure to visit his blog, an absolute must read: http://blog.vincentlaforet.com (which is where I got this image).

His Bio:
Vincent, a three-time winner at the prestigious 2010 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival, is a director and Pulitzer Prize–winning photographer who is known for his forward-thinking approach to image-making and storytelling. In addition to having been commissioned by just about every important international publication—including Vanity Fair, The New York Times Magazine, National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, Time, Newsweek, and Life—Vincent is considered a pioneer both for his innovative tilt-shift and aerial photography and in the field of HD-capable DSLR cameras. In fact, his short film Reverie, the first 1080p video shot with a still camera, was seen by more than 2 million times on the first week of its release in 2009.
