Tilt Shift Photography - the use of camera movements on small- and medium-format cameras, and sometimes specifically refers to the use of tilt for selective focus, often for simulating a miniature scene. Sometimes the term is used when the shallow depth of field is simulated with digital post processing; the name derives from the tilt-shift lens normally required when the effect is produced optically.
