To find a scene or a location or a subject that works with tilt-shift is a challenging task. However, by following just two simple rules and guidelines, you can master the art of taking pictures with tilt-shift. With a little knowledge, you would be able to select the right photo to use a tilt-shift technique.
The two most important things to keep in mind while selecting a photo are depth and scene.
1. Depth : While selecting a location, you should always ask a question to yourself. Does the location has a good balance of near as well as far areas? The bottom part of the photo should be the nearest to your camera. And as you move to the top, the distance of the objects in the photos should gradually become further away.
The perfect example here would be, when you look down at an angle to a scene from a high point, like a building or something, it often make good tilt-shift miniatures, because they have a good mix of objects at different distances. Having good depth in the photo is really very important
2. Scene : The second most important thing to consider while selecting a photo to use tilt-shift is the scene. You should often ask yourself "Is the photo of a scene in the distance, or a close-up shot?" If it is a close-up, its not a good choice. But, if it is at a distance, it may be a good choice. Photos of scenes work much better. Close-up shots of one or more subjects rarely work well. You must avoid tilt-shift in case of portraits or extreme close-up shots of a subject.
