So -- after an afternoon of backyard duties (someone's got to pick up after the dogs) -- I decided to look through some photos to see if I had anything that would work.
I finally came across an image taken in Kansas City, Mo last summer.
Click on the image for a larger preview size.
I checked out Youtube -- and there are a number of Tilt Shift tutorials on their website also.
I know this might not have been the best image to try this effect out on - but, you got to dance with the one that brung ya sometimes! When I'm out and about with my camera, I'll be sure to keep this effect in mind when taking pictures.
OK -- here's your gratuitous dog shot of the day. It's a new trick I taught Blue -- rollover and play dead! He's so smart! Well, I must come clean - Blue's just getting his day old bathed fur dirty (he loves rolling around in the yard). Makes me wonder why I bathe them at all!
Have a great Wednesday!
