Light a small world

Skimboarders at sunrise in Mati, Davao Oriental.  Tiltshifting.

“No matter how small we are or what color we might be; Like a small candle, we all can produce the same light. Spread light with your thoughts, words and actions. It’s a dark world… and you are here to create light.”

Tiltshift photography is what I use to create an illusion of miniature models from large-sized subjects in my photographs. I also refer to them as diorama. With selective focusing, shallow depth of field, and brightly saturated colors, your mind is tricked into thinking you are looking at small scale subjects.

Below is an image of me as I shot the young skimboarders at sunrise. (not a tiltshift)
