Artist Keith Loutit combines two techniques––tilt-shift and time-lapse photography––to create this dreamy video of the Sony PlayStation 3 South Pacific Monster Truck World Finals in Brisbane, Australia. (Snappy title, no?)
For non-techies: in tilt-shift photography objects are made to appear small and toy-like by altering the camera's lens to narrow the image's depth of field--the portion of a scene that appears sharp.
By running together 15,000 of these still photos taken over three hours he created a magical time-lapse animation.
"My work has a simple message: that the world is an amazing place, worthy of a second but closer look. Both techniques are tools to achieve this," he said.
