Ritchie Bros. tilt-shiftOur friends over at Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers did a pretty cool thing during one of their recent auctions. Rather than grabbing normal footage of the huge event, they commissioned a “tilt-shift” filming.

For those unfamiliar with the terminology, tilt-shift photography is basically a technique of filming that plays with the focus of the camera a bit to make normal scenes look miniature.

The result at a Ritchie Bros. auction is that all of this huge equipment ends up looking like toy models. It’s a very cool effect. Check out the video below.
