Oh my! What's this? Is it a small model that someone spent hours and hours straining their eyes to work on?

 
Admittedly, no, it's just a trick in Photoshop but funky and deceiving nonetheless! I wanted to know if it worked (as in, that it looked like an actual model), so I showed it to a professional photographer/Photoshop guy, who was baffled that I managed to make something so small. It was totally worth the look on his face when I told him it was a method called tilt shift and it takes about 5 minutes to do in Photohop!

Here's a few more "models"  Grin

Mini Choisey-Le-Roi, Paris


Mini Tractor


Mini climber


Mini Sleeping Man


 If anyone wants to try this for themselves, the finest tutorial is here!

I've been wondering how to do this technique and you've done such a great job of it!  I especially like the Mini Choisey-Le-Roi, Paris.  And the tractor.  And the climber.  Thanks so much for the link!

Tilt-Shift is fun. I love the tractor. Here's one I did of my college campus a few years ago.

I can't wait to try this!  My dad is currently moving his model train stuff into it's own room... these will be really cool to make for him to hang up!  Thanks!
