Artist uses tilt-shift technique to reimagine Vincent van Gogh’s iconic paintings (16 photos)
Tilt-shift photography has become very popular in recent years, and there are many great examples of its unique ability to make real-world scenes look like miniature models. This technique can be achieved optically using special lenses or simulated in Photoshop through a process called “miniature faking” by manipulating contrast, saturation and depth of focus.
An art student at the time, Serena Marion explored the possibility of applying the tilt-shift technique to classical paintings, especially those produced by the famous Impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh. She Marion photoshopped Van Gogh’s masterpiece to create a stunning tilt her shift effect, making the painting look like her 3D her diorama.
Since Serena’s first experiments, her work has perhaps inspired other artists and photographers to explore tilt-shift manipulation in classical painting, further pushing the boundaries of this revolutionary technique. It’s important to note that although modifications have been made to achieve the tilt-shift effect, the essence of the original masterpiece remains intact, no elements have been added or removed.
