Just returned home from a great vacation in Norway. Instead of taking my expensive camera, I bought a Lumix DMC-ZS25 – great choice for taking quick personal pictures and videos on the run. The camera has an amazing “miniature effect” that’s usually created with an expensive tilt-shift lens used in architectural photography. That lens gives perspective control…so a building does not feel like it’s falling backwards…and a tilt feature that controls depth of field.
Trying to think of creative ways to use this effect. Here’s a short 5-second clip to give you a look at what it does. In reality, the mountains shoot over 3,000 feet almost straight up from the water.
