Tilt-Shift Video, Coachella 2010 by Sam O'Hare
Tilt shift is a video style where the lens is tilted inside the camera so the top part is out of focus. This particular video explores the location of Coachella, an annual music festival that takes place in the desert city of Indio, California. Tilt shift encompasses two types of movement: rotation of the lens plane relative to the image plane (which is called tilt) and movement of the lens parallel to the image plane (called shift). The resulting effect is that all the movement looks miniaturized and rapid.
