For the Love of the Craft | Tilt Shift Photography

When I started moving back into photography a few years ago, I spent a lot of time experimenting in photo editing software starting with Microsoft PictureIt, then Photoshop Elements and finally professional versions of Photoshop.  But as, business and life took priority, I accidently left behind learning and experimenting with  my photos.  

As the Cardinals moved into the World Series last week, I remembered some photos I took while up in the top of the St. Louis Arch last Christmas. Photos that, shamefully, didn’t make it to my blog. But after recently reading a blog post about tilt shift photography (the process of making a life size image look like a miniature model) I was inspired to revisit them!

Obviously, I don’t have a tilt shift lens, but revisited these images in Photoshop with a very easy tutorial that you can find here, gave them a new life that I love. I honestly think I took them with photoshop in mind - I don't get to shoot from this perspective often and I'm happy with how they turned out! You can see the originals here and here.

I’m going to have to go through my archives and see what else I can fake into a tilt-shift photo.

But that’s for another day.

Wordless Wednesday | Tea Time

Working from home can be challenging at times;  but when my paperwork is piling up, the deadline is looming and I start to get grumpy-flustered; it’s nice to walk up and see this waiting for me. “You need a tea break”, he says.

Suddenly everything is put back in to perspective.


Happy Wednesday.
