Tilt shift timelapse - Jackson Hole and Whistler

So the new video craze is "tilt shift" which original started as a method of taking photos with a special lens that removes some of the effect of convergent lines, if for example you need to photograph a tall building. It is also associated with very shallow depth of field. The effect is that it often looks like you are vieiwng a miniature model.

As with many of these things it started with expensive lens and  now can be done with post processing of photographs in special software. Most recently people have started making movies using it.

The best I have found takes us on a ski tour to the Tetons here and another to Whistler here.

The effect is pretty amazing and its well worth wathcing both videos on full screen.
