Tilt-Shift Photography

What is Tilt-Shift Photography, and why should you care?

The general idea behind Tilt/Shift photography is that special lenses can be bent from side to side (tilt) and also from from their normal parallel, in-line, plane (shift). The tilt seems to create photos with very specific, and changeable, focal point within the photo while the shift action can be used to correct geometric distortion (converging lines). However, both types of photography yield amazing, and unrealistic, results.
