Toy birthplace: urban landscapes of Russia in the lens tilt-shift

Amateur photographers often experiment with different shooting modes to get unusual shots. One of these techniques is called tilt-shift: it is the use of a special lens that allows you to adjust the tilt of the optical axis.

Due to the shift of the optical axis is easier to control the future, and to simulate the effect of macro photography, getting in center of frame spot of field. Due to decreasing the sharpness of the edges of the frame composition is perceived as a model: the vision focuses on small objects in the center, eroding all that remains out of focus.

In the hands of skilled photographers such optical reception turns any landscape into a toy scene.
