Kwon-10401-3 The winners of the Nikon Small World photography contest have been announced and they are breathtaking. Seen here is the 1st Place winner, "Double transgenic mouse embryo, 18.5 days (17x)," taken by Gloria Kwon of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Institute. To create the image, she used brightfield, darkfield, and fluorescence (GFP and RFP) microscopy techniques.

Fake tilt shift photography tutorial

200602271306 A while back I wrote about cool style of photography, called tilt shift, that makes aerial photographs of real scenes look like miniature models. The effect is charming, but expensive, because you have to buy a tilt-shift lens.Here's a nice little tutorial for faking the same effect using Photoshop. The results are very nice.

While purchasing a "real" tilt-shift (as you were calling it, in my business we call it a "swing and tilt") is too expensive for most of us, there is a cheap alternative. For about $100 you can get a Lensbaby, which is a super analog lens. No focus marks, manual apeture (I mean real manual.) I've been shooting with one for over a year and it is easily my favorite single lens (particularly on the bang/buck ratio.)
