Tilt Shift - Keith Loutit

Keith Loutit is an Australian photographer.
He uses tilt-shift and stop motion technics... and is good at it !

"Tilt-shift" actually encompasses two different types of movements: rotation of the lens relative to the image plane, called tilt, and movement of the lens parallel to the image plane, called shift. Tilt is used to control the orientation of the plane of focus (PoF), and hence the part of an image that appears sharp; it makes use of the Scheimpflug principle. Shift is used to change the line of sight while avoiding the convergence of parallel lines, as when photographing tall buildings.

This tecnic combine with stop motion gives an extraordinary impression as you can see in this video...
