Three essential needs for that:

1. Practice

2. Practice

3. Practice

I spend a lot of time (maybe too much) just farting around with Photoshop and other processing software just to pick up a technique I may use later. If you can't swing Photoshop, try GIMP. It's free. Then Google GIMP (or Photoshop) tutorials and follow along. You'll learn. Just takes practice.

Today I felt like spending an hour or so during a work break to check out tilt-shift photography. I found tutorials on how to do this using any picture. Of course it would be better to use a tilt-shift lens, but those are expensive and require some time to learn how to use them. I decided to check out the photoshop/post-processing route just for fun.

Hereís one I came up with. The original photo isnít all that great, and there was no editing done on it to save time. What do you think of the tilt-shift version?

Thumbs up

Very cool. You might try shifting the "clear" area up a tad, but otherwise it transforms this pic into something really cool.

The base image itself is interesting. Where is that? Looks like a cool place to hang out on a summer's eve.

I tried this technique with an image of my Z4 in my driveway. It worked pretty well, although I was a newb at PS at the time. I should go back and try it again.

This is the link to the tutorial I used, although there are many out there:

Seeing this page was my inspiration though.

Thanks Mark. What exactly do you mean by the "clear" area in the image? It was during the Harbor and Locks cruise by Argosy tours in Seattle.

EDIT: n/m, I figured out what you meant. Yeah, I should've cleaned it up beforehand, but I didn't want to spend more than a couple minutes on this initial trial.

Yeah, usually with these, the "subject" is in focus and the rest is not. I was looking at the...um, dockhouses (?) as the subject.

Just curious, do you know anything about these structures? Can anyone just "build onto" the existing floating village? Must be a very cool place to spend the summer.

Yeah, the houseboats were the subject. The reason the top part of the houseboats were also blurred out is because a tighter subject area gave a better effect in this case. I tried to widen the focused area, but the result wasn't as good.

I'd be lying if I told you I knew much about these. I think these were built along the docks in empty spaces. I think right now they are all taken up, and it's very expensive to own one of those. One of the boathouses (not in this particular pic) was supposedly in the movie Sleepless in Seattle (which I haven't seen).

They are pretty expensive, imo. It's prolly not worth buying unless you have a true passion for it (kind of like a dedicated macro lens), or if you have a paying client who wants a job professionally done.
