An Aussie by the name of Keith Loutit has put together these amazing time-lapse photos using a tilt-shift lense. For those of you not willing to read a lengthy Wikipedia article, tilt-shift lenses have been around for awhile and what they do is shift the lense of a camera off center of the film (or digital sensor) or tilt it so that it comes in at an angle. The method used here is tilt photography and what it does is make everything in a straight line to be in very sharp focus and everything else to be very blurry. When combined with a high vantage point and sharp shadows, it can make a normal beach photo look like a super detailed model. This is the first time I have seen it done with time lapse photography and the effect is pretty awesome. When I first saw this I probably spent about an hour looking at tilt-shift photos on Flickr. Then I took a nap. Then I woke up and looked at some more photos. And that was my day.
