Tilt-Shift Photography and Vincent Van Gogh

There's been a lot of love for tilt-shift photography recently, and it's easy to see why.  By altering the focus of your lens, you can create a huge range of different effects, making real landscapes look miniature and making miniature landscapes look huge.  This one though, is all new.

If you swing over to Artcyclopedia, you'll find a fascinating tilt-shift photography gallery that displays photographs of the work of Vincent Van Gogh.  At first you might think that you're looking at three dimensional representations of his work, but these are simply effects of the shooting style.

"Nothing in any of these paintings been added or removed or had its proportions changed," explains the site. "The effect is achieved simply by manipulating the light in the scene and adjusting the areas of the image that are more and less in focus."
