Preview from a Photoshoot and Tilt Shift Effect Video

This is from a recent photoshoot!

Just a preview photo, because this one was funny.

Also, see the video, Snow Day in Vancouver!

The footage was taken with the Olympus E-PL1 in the Diorama mode.  This is a time lapsed effect that imitates the miniature view of a tilt shift lens.  The lens used was the 70-200 F/4L Canon lens attached with an adapter.  With the crop factor of 2x, I was able to capture all this footage from the balcony of my Condo.

How it was made:

I recorded the footage from my balcony by simply placing the camera on a tripod and letting it record the scenes.  It was time lapsed, and the frame rate recorded was 15 frames per second.

After the video was recorded, I used Adobe Media Encoder to turn the footage in to mpeg-2 format so I can easily edit it.  Here I converted it to 30 frames per second (there was some rendering issue, this was my only solution for it).  Afterwards, I imported the footage to Adobe Premiere Pro, and cut the footage together.  Each cut corresponds to a different shot I took.  I took each at (slightly) different angles and distances, and used various film cutting techniques to make it look interesting.


  1. Great project! How many images did you take and how did you pot them together?

  2. Hey! Thanks for watching. I add ended the post and put up a more detailed description. If you have more questions, let me know, cheers!
