Many digital cameras offer a ‘miniature’ effect to make city scapes and landscapes look like model villages. It’s all a bit naff, but there’s a real use for this effect – a sort of ‘ Lensbaby on the cheap’ if you like.
You may be able to control the orientation and focus zone -the Canon 60D allows this and the orientation has been switched to vertical for this shot to focus attention in the window’s axis.
Same here – plus a layer and some post-processing to add some drama.
Vertical again – there’s a pattern emerging here – looks quite ‘Lensbabyish’.
Finally one I was really pleased with – but horizontal orientation this time. The light was almost horizontal and illuminating the plastic kid’s playhouse against a dark background.
As always these shots are taken for the book cover market, and all comments, critiques and questions are welcome.
Thanks for looking – hope you like them and they give you some creative ideas for your photography
