quite amazing what someone with a lot of time on their hands can do.
ps - the image above was manipulated to simulate the effect of a tilt shift lens. from what i read, the lensbaby is also a type of tilt-shift lens, so i wanted to see if it could achieve the same effect (the miniature model effect). the result is the image below. initially, i tried using a small aperture to see if i could get this effect. i couldn't, so i tried using the widest aperture on the lensbaby (f2.0), but still the effects aren't what i hoped they would be. maybe there's something else about conventional tilt-shift lenses that the lensbaby isn't capable of (27/10/2006).
