The video is awesome. Thanks! It's worth watching in full screen in 720P if you're not squeamish. The video at the start and end isn't in HD but the pictures are. I really like how he explains that it is really about patience and taking lots and lots of pictures.

I LOVE macro photography! this and tilt-shift are my favorite types!

Do you take tilt shift photos yourself? If so what lens do you use? I've been wanting to get into that for a while...

yes, i know very little about it. what kind of equipment is required?

I have a tilt shift lens, a few apps, and a place high up where I can make things look small. It's not too hard actually

I'm not sure what lens I have ( though it is a Canon) and I also have one that was made in a KipKay video

Oh aanndd you need a tripod or video tripod.

Cerek, you should write a tutorial article on taking tilt shift...

Good idea, I should! But I don't have a video camera, so it would have to be all writing. I'll try to make one after I'm done with my current WIP tutorial.

I'd love to see some of your tilt-shift photos. Have you tried to do any of the time lapse tilt-shift photography?

Yes, I have! Its really fun.

wow, Impressed with the detail. Thanks.

AUsome.. BTW this site has a great design and articles have beautiful photos.
