Thought I would share a cool online program called tiltshift maker. The site allows the user to create an effect that normally can only be done with a special lens that allows you to choose the area to be focused and unfocused. The end result gives the impression that you took an image of a miniature “set” of the subject matter. To create this illusion, I found an online site that makes it easy to use by anyone without the need of special lenses! Feel free to play around with it using your photos!
Here is one sample I created from a photo I took earlier this year in Hawaii.
