Tilt Shift

Christopher Schaarschmidt took 12000 pictures with his camera in a national Park in Saxon, Switzerland and created a miniature story of the area and set it to music, manipulating the depth of field.

Christopher collected the photos throughout five days and compiled them to make a stop-motion type video that shows scenes from the town. These videos are very popular and I found it here, a site that shows some really amazing examples of this. The tilt-shift technique can be done with a special lens, but it can also be created on your computer. It mostly involves creating a focus point, usually in the center of the footage, and blurring everything around it.

Below is a simple tutorial on one way to create tilt shift (a more simplified version then some of the others I found)

This is another amazing one I found that takes place in London using 25850 images! The site also included instructions from the creator of the video.
