Believe it or not, these are not tilt-shift photos. They’re both naturally focused like this–I just rested the camera on the ground and let the autofocus do the rest. But I am as fascinated with the technique as I am with miniatures, and even though I’m nowhere near good enough to pull it off in real life, I’ve recently been playing with the technique of faking a tilt-shift photo in Photoshop. Below is a photo from the same desert excursion that I did Photoshop into a faux tilt-shift image:
