Tokyo iPhone Tilt-Shift Photos

Posted by on Monday, 19 April, 2010

Tilt-Shift Cherry Blossoms
The guy who writes the blog Tokyotimes published some interesting Tilt-Shift photos on his site the other day. You might remember from a past post that I love those kind of shots.

Worth noting in this case though, is that they are all taken (and post-processed) with an iPhone! Mighty impressive work if you ask me.

Here are the link to his photostream: Tokyotimes posterous

I just wanted to let you know that if you are looking at this page to see if there are any new photos uploaded, you will not see any. I have stopped uploading photos here completely and rely only on Flickr now.

Please see the link below.

Posted by on Monday, 24 July, 2006

I have collected quite a few funny and interesting photos on my cellphone, snapshots I have taken when I saw something that really caught my eye. I figured I got enough for a blog post, so here you go! Hover over the photo for a description, click to view the whole photo.

Ginza Chuo-Dori on a Saturday

In case you are looking for the “joke” or “funny part” in that last photo… there is none, I just wanted to post post how Ginza now looks on Saturdays and Sundays – when theyu turn Chuo-Dori into a no-car zone. Recently they have put out some tables and chairs in the middle of the street for people to sit and relax. It’s really really nice, actually.

By the way, a few months ago, I posted another batch of these kinds of photos, check that post out here.

Photos Now Available on Flickr

Posted by on Sunday, 2 April, 2006

I have started publishing my photos on Flickr now as well. To see my photos there, go to:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/lostinjapan/

For now, the plan is to upload most photos there, and then keep some of the best here locally. As for now, I do not have a Pro Flickr account, so there are not so many. I plan to upgrade shortly and start uploading my backlog of photos.

Tilt-shift photos seem to be the latest cool thing

The latest “cool thing” on the Internet seems to be collections of Tilt-Shift photos – especially the trick used when taking photos from a very high point (tall building or helicopter) and focusing on a small area down on the ground, creating an illusion that makes the scenery in the picture look like a model city. It’s pretty cool stuff, and I think the latest Internet craze of this technique, which is not a new one, started with Andy Baio linking to this: The City as an Avatar of itself. Then a flood of information followed; there’s a Flickr group here.

And here is good resource for information and links to nice photos: http://hame.ca/tiltshift.htm (Set up by the guy who took the brilliant photo above.)

The latest I found is a Japanese page featuring photos from Tokyo using this technique, there are some very nice pictures here at the “Bitter Girls” Blog. (via Del.icio.us)
