Ok-so it is nearly lunch time here in the burbs of KC and I am up and ready for a Monday at work. (Not really!!!!! But dh found red bull cola and my is it tasty…)
I had a boring little lecture on the theory of triangular spacing and layout composition, but instead I decided to share with you the coolest site for playing with your landscape photos. If you read DST over the weekend you probably know what I am taking about, but if not let me introduce you to the mini maker…… TILTSHIFT
This photo site turns any photo into a miniature scale. It is so difficult to describe what it does so let me show you. But my best reference is think movie set miniatures that they make for sci-fi movies.
This is my home town of Kansas city. This is actually an aerial shot of the downtown metro. Now once you upload to tiltshift and they doe their magic I am given this.
A miniature scale model of my home town….how cool is that? Even better? IT’S FREE!!!!
Now the rules: The photo action really works best on landscapes and those that have some depth of field. To make the miniaturization more pronounced. Not really for those portrait shots.
Go have fun…….show me some of your home town shots miniaturized!!!!
