A New Angle on Tilt-Shift Photography

August 20th, 2011

Tilt Shift!.jpgSkrekkogle is a Norwegian design company that has some very interesting ideas when it comes to
tilt-shift photography. Making regular sized objects appear
miniature is what tilt-shift is all about, but Skrekkogle has found a
way to make the illusion even more convincing.

The secret to their success – a giant
coin placed in the photograph to give it scale. When placed on a
car, next to a building, a dumpster or any variety of other objects,
the coin looks to be normal sized while the subject of the photograph
appears to be small.

The effect is convincing, and probably
even better for those more familiar with the currency. If this were
done with US based currency it would almost certainly look better to
American eyes.

Check out Skrekkogle’s
