Tilt-shift time-lapse

Eiffel Tilt Shift II by Hanna Maria and Arnar

I already exuberantly posted one of Keith Loutit‘s videos on my Tumblr page today (via I Like), and found more on Boing Boing just now. They’re pretty wonderful.

 

Tilt-shift photography is a technique involving an expensive lens (but that can be faked with Photoshop) which makes real photographs look like pictures of model villages and towns etc. See many on Flickr, such as the lovely Parisian scene at the top of this post. The logical next step is, of course, video. Royal Baronial Theatre has had this go using a flip which is mostly successful, but my discovery of the day is Loutit and his time-lapsed, tilt-shifted videos. His pictures of Sydney and particularly the Monster Truck Rally are bizarre, and surreal, and pretty beautiful, really.
