Tilt Shift

Me and kevin both love photography and many photographers try their hand at time lapse, usually with mediocre results. Not Keith Loutit though, he is one of the greatest tilt-shift photographers in the world right now. What is tilt shift? Well it is a type of camera lens that allows you to really control your focus points and gives you much more control over aperture. What does this have to do with animation? Take a look.

The effect is great and these real people are displayed in a way that we think were looking at a ant colony. According to Keith "These photographs and short films were made in ordinary places, probably not too unlike where you live." I like the simplicity of it. And if I had to guess he probably uses a tripod,a intervolometer, a tilt shift lens on a Digital SLR, and animation software to stitch everything together.
