In my attempt at Photography – I have been playing with the Tilt-Shift to make a scene look like it is a model platform.

Seeing this Allstate Insurance Commercial on TV today it reminded me how much I like this technique and this would be a fun project to do someday on video.

If you check out Photoshop Nations on Geeks – You can see some of the Tilt Shift Attempts in photoshop.
