Instantshift has some great examples of tilt shift photography. Known for it’s reduced depth of field, it can make normal scenes seem as if they’re miniature. I don’t have the lenses on my camera to make this type of image. A workaround I’ve found that works good is in Photoshop, duplicate your image onto a new layer, then blur that layer so it looks out of focus. Then mask out the focal point of that layer with a layer mask and the in focus layer below will show through.
