If you haven't seen the tilt shift effect used online yet, you've probably been living under a rock. Or you spend less time online than I do. Either way, it's a really cool photo effect that allows you to make real-life events look like you're watching animated miniatures. This video, The City of Samba, is the best and most fun example of it I've seen. So sit back and watch a miniature carnival unfold in front of your eyes.
