Bass Shake – Adobe After Effects tutorial

Shake the camera with your thumping bass, even if you can’t separate the bass from the track. Pump it. Pump that bass. And then shake it. And by it I mean the camera. Not your booty. Shake your booty if you want but this is not about that at all.

How to Fake Tilt Shift Photography

So you want to make tilt shift video but don’t own a tilt shift lens? What a coincidence neither do I but I don’t let it get to me. Here’s is how to fake it till you make it, and by make it I mean go to a thrift store and get an outdated piece of camera technology… or buy a lensbaby, that’s a thing too.

Anyway tilt shift, aka tiny town, or tiny toy effect is about messing with the focal plane for strange results. It makes a normal city look like miniatures and really robs the life and detail from a shot in ways some people find appealing. Don’t ask me who, I don’t know them.
