I remember, when I was a kid, I was obsessed of two things of all other things: mickey mouse and miniature stuff. The latter is what I’m going to talk about now. I have a crush on things in miniature size that I almost pursued a degree in Architecture hoping I could make a model of city or building. But my awful drawing skill pushed me back, unfortunately. There was also a type of toy named “polly pocket” back then at my 9th to 15th that I collected and wholeheartedly loved. (In fact, as I’m writing this, I wonder where they all go now.) Several times I made a visit to children’s store and wandered along the toy alleys, I noticed that polly pocket is still in the market but it’s a lot different now and frankly speaking, I love the old ones better. Now it comes in bigger size. I don’t get what’s the reasoning behind when to me polly pocket means miniature land. Ok, forget my rants, that’s not the main point.
My point is, my awe of miniature things forced me to do something on photoshop ground. I have been playing a while with tilt-shift effect on photoshop which results can be seen above. It wasn’t too complicated anyway plus there are many tutorials provided in the internet-sphere. All we need to do is try and try until we’re happy with the results. I really fancy the fairytale vibe this tilt-shift effect brings. And now, all of a sudden I crave for taking pictures from places up high to tilt-shift them and create miniature effect. Anyway, those are pictures of Edinburgh city view taken from up of the Edinburgh castle.
How would you like those pictures?
