Matthew And Me Music Video: 'Old Flame Alight' Does Tilt-Shift Right (VIDEO)

Ever since we saw tilt-shift photography of cities made famous by photographers from Claudio Edinger onward, we've been waiting for a music video to take the incredible shrinking technology to new heights.

"Old Flame Alight," the music video for UK-based band Matthew and Me, combines the perspective-warping tilt shift rotation with a beautiful barrage of multicolored umbrellas. With dozens of chilly participants, 100 umbrellas and two cameras, the video above turns banal urban sprawl into something magical.

Let us know your favorite examples of tilt-shift photography in the comments. In the meantime, see Ben Thomas' recent "CityShrinker" series below:
