Tilt-shift photography is often used to make a life-sized subject or location look miniature in scale. When shooting from above and with the addition of vivid color, the results can be quite dramatic. You do not need an expensive lens to take advantage of this technique, some cameras offer software filters in camera or simple processing adjustments to simulate a shallow depth of field would do the job. However you choose to demonstrate the technique, get creative and let us see some miniature worlds.

How it works

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.

Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
