Tilting and Shifting

I've yet to blog about my visit to the Petronas Twin Towers Sky Bridge a few weeks back but I do have some photos I took from the bridge and have done some "effects" on it.

One of my last attempt was done using Gimp but this time, equipped with Photoshop, I was able to use the Lens Blur effect on the photos I had. The effect is just amazing!!

This other attempt was just awful. Not that Gimp is bad but probably I'm not good at using it. (^^)

After checking some of the "miniatures" at this Flickr group, I'm trying to see if I have any other photos which I can manipulate as well. Kekeke..


This shot was taken where the KL Convention Centre was. The park below is very pleasant and I did run the track a few times before the monsoon season hit. The image now looks like those miniature models which housing developers display at the housing development site, no?


The dreaded intersection of Jalan Ampang, Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, and Lorong P.Ramlee... Yes, even during lunch time, the traffic along Jalan Ampang can be horrendous. Hehehe.. I like this picture alot as the cars look like those Micro Machines toys from my childhood.

As for tutorials.. I think you can google for it and there's a whole bunch of great tutorials to try out. ;-)


  1. Yes they look like miniature. Nice action. Very interesting.

    Will try to google this up.

  2. I was about to comment that your first photo looks like those miniature models displayed by housing developers and then you mentioned it!

    The second photo is very nice. you are right! Those cars look like toys! : )

  3. Very "cute" pictures.

  4. *thumbsup* good attempt! next time teach me ya! =P

  5. Wow! Good attempt. I thought they were miniatures. :D

  6. Good try. Good try.


  7. Hi all,

    Thanks for the comments. ;-)

    Che-Cheh - Do try it out! I'm wondering if I can try this technique with other photos. :-)

    foongpc - Kekeke.. That's what I thought too when I saw some tilt-and-shift photos for the first time.

    Lisan - Thanks!

    crazywrazy - Quite easy to do this if you have Photoshop. :P

    Tekkaus - Thanks! I got bored with the regular photos I took from the Sky Bridge.
