Tilt-Shift Photography

Written by kujophoto on April 28th, 2010

Have you ever seen a picture that looks like a small toy model only to realize in the end that it is an actual photograph of a real life object? If the answer is yes, then you have been fooled by tilt-shift photography.

Tilt-shift is a photography technique that utilizes selective focus to make objects in a photo appear as if they were a mini model. You feel as if the people or structures in the photo are little plastic pieces that you could pick up and move around like model figures.

On my recent trip to Cincinnati, I took a shot at producing a few tilt shift images. My brother and I went up to the top of a large hill at one of the nearby parks and took shots of the riverfront and into Kentucky. Here are the final photos from my experiment. Let me know what you think of the pictures and tilt-shift photography in general.

Written by kujophoto on April 28th, 2010

I’ve had a slight hiatus from the blog and apologize for that. In that time though, Kujo Photography has been cooking up some new offerings that are sure to peak your interest. First off we are launching some small, yet powerful changes to the website soon. These changes include better navigation within service pages, such as wedding, engagement, events, etc. This will allow everyone to find what they are looking for both easier and faster!

Old Photos, New Technique

Written by kujophoto on March 23rd, 2010

I was taking a look back through some basketball photos that I shot about 4 years ago, back at Eastern Michigan University. The game was against conference rival Toledo, which of course I had a vested interest being from Toledo myself. The result of the game, I couldn’t quite remember, so I went ahead and looked it up… sadly the Eagles lost 56-66.

Anyway, I came upon a few photos that I really enjoyed and have decided to show you a new editing technique that I have been working on. Hope you enjoy! KujoPhoto.com

Toledo Ohio Nature PhotographerOver the past week and a half, here in Toledo, Ohio, we have experienced quite the snow storm. Nothing like the east coast has received, but during these 10 or so days over a foot of snow has fallen. Finally a mild day today brought some relief to the area.

A few days ago, while the snow was still falling I figuring that it would be a good time to get some winter weather photos, so I trekked outside to capture pictures of the snow.

Here are a few images from the past week here in Northwest Ohio. If you have any winter storm stories please feel free to comment or send pictures of your own to Toledo Snow Storm Photoinfo@kujophoto.com and we will add them to the blog!
