What's the best way to create a tilt-shift photograph?
How to get a miniature effect on pictures?

I have seen in different places the tilt-shift photography effect, and have never been able to recreate it on my own. What is the secret to these kinds of pictures? Does it only work with classic trains, or is it some setting on your camera?

P.S. Does anyone know of any other tags I could put on this question?

Also pretty much everything existing under tilt-shift. :) –  mattdm Mar 26 '12 at 17:32
    
Sorry... Should have checked earlier posts. I find that's my worst problem on SE. Whenever I have a problem, I always just ask my own question without checking for duplicates. There goes my 100% accept rate :( –  J. Walker Mar 26 '12 at 20:52

There is some software that will replicate the effect, especially special effects camera apps for smart phones, but the only true way to achieve the effect is with a very expensive tilt shift lens for a dslr.

There is a cheaper alternative in the form of a lens baby (also for a dslr), which will give you a similar effect at the expense of quality.

They need not be "very expensive". Russian- or Ukranian-made ones can be had for a very reasonable price in various mounts; I have one myself. –  Staale S Mar 26 '12 at 19:57
