Experiments with Tilt-Shift Photography

With my recent switch to Android and the Motorola Atrix, I've been having a great time testing out the apps that are now available to me.  One of the functions I wanted to try out was some sort of camera app that allowed tilt-shift photography with my little 5 mp camera on the phone.  The best one I found so far is called Vignette.

Tilt-shift photography is a simple process of focusing on the center of the frame while gradually blurring as it stretches towards the edge of the picture.  This creates the very cool effect of causing real life scenes to appear to be made up of children's toys.

Take a look at some of the shots here and let me know your experience.  Do you have a better app for this?  What is your favorite Android photography app?

Obtaining the CSP certification isn't easy but the process is simple and fairly straight forward:

Users must already be a CSM, CSPO, or Certified Scrum Developer (CSD)Users must has 36 months experience with Scrum over the past 5 yearsUsers must gather and submit 70 Scrum Educational Units (SEU) over the past 3 years The Scrum Alliance makes the process easy as well in that they have an online application where you can fill out the needed information, record y…
