Fancy doing a bit of tilt-shifting? Tilt-shifting is a simple modification of a photo to make the person in it look like a 'model' with a bit of blurring and ramping up the saturation. The trick is to either use a special camera, some paid-for photo-editing software or (even more simply) this handy, miniature free online tool called tiltshiftmaker.

The effect is subtle but affective. The one of the left is the BEFORE. The one on the right is the AFTER.

    it looks weird the one on the left because it's all in deep focus and there is something nice about having a bit of blur in a picture

    Strangely, despite all the tilting, neither of you look remotely like models.

    Might want to check the instruction book again.

    I think I prefer the one on the left!
