Tilt Shift : Classic Revamp

The Starry Night, 1889
Red Chestnuts in the Public Park at Arles, 1889 
Prisoners Exercising, 1890
Starry Night Over the Rhone, 1888
Wheat Field with Rising Sun, 1889
If any of these images made you do a double take, it's thanks to a new photomanipulation technique called tilt-shift photography, which developed a few years ago. After seeing how tilt-shift photography could make real world scenes appear like miniature models using a special lens, Serena Malyon decided to simulate the effect on Van Gogh's famous paintings. Using Photoshop, she manipulated the light and adjusted the focus to make us see these paintings in ways we could have never imagined.

Amazingly, nothing in these paintings was changed, added or removed. The incredible illusions are all created by the magic of Photoshop. Read Selena's interview discussing how she did this on My Modern Metropolis.
