Miniature fakes

Miniature faking is a way to postprocess photograph to look like a photograph of a miniature scale model. The technic consist in blurring some parts of the picture to simulate a very short depth of field of a close up photography. Then you can enhance colors up to saturation to make the scene mmore unreal. This is a funny way to valorise your aerial pictures in a different manner.





I discovered this a long time ago, but never tried because using Photoshop was a bit painful and complex to obtain good result. Recently, I read on RCGroups that a website was proposing to do the modifications online, with very few parameters, and the ability to save the result on disk.

The website is http://tiltshiftmaker.com


The results depends greatly of the original picture, the angle of the shot, colors, details, etc ...
