If you’ve ever wanted to make your subjects look small–like, miniature-toy small–you may have investigated buying a tilt-shift lens for more than $2,500. But there are cheaper options. This video gives a host of helpful tips for achieving an awesome tilt-shift style using a normal DSLR lens:
The image was taken in April 2010, during the most recent eruption of Eyjafjallajokull, an Icelandic volcano covered by an ice cap. Volcanic lightning–also known as a “dirty thunderstorm”–occurs when static charges are produced by rock fragments and ice particles colliding with the ash in a volcanic cloud.
The staff at the park said they asked for permission from the park authority, Tanapa, to feed Big Bird fish since he was unable to fish by himself. The Great White Pelican, unlike the Brown Pelican, do not dive for fish individually. Instead, they work together to corral the fish into a single area, then scoop them up into the large, stretchy pouches below their bills.
Shutter speed and aperture (f-stop) are the two main things we must concern ourselves when aiming for sharp pictures. Shutter speed is responsible for the amount of time that the shutter is open. Aperture is responsible for depth of field and the amount of light coming into the sensor.

The Grand Spectacle began when Bradley was visiting Australia in 2011. He was planning a friend’s party and, quite arbitrarily, decided he wanted an image of milk being thrown on someone. After being unable to find any such photo online, he decided to take one himself. Then another. Then another.
Photographer Luca Giustozzi, who dubbed the shot “Land of Whispering Wind,” captured the picturesque landscape outside of the village of Castelluccio di Norcia, which borders Monti Sibillini National Park. The park was established as a protected area in 1993.
This technique can be applied to many different types of photographs. We are only limited by our own imaginations and creativity, so once you have everything set up on Photoshop, play around with the different overlay modes and opacity slider until you have exactly what you are looking for.
