The Miniature Model Effect in Photoshop: It’s a Small World After All
Photo by ElbCoast77
You know how when you’re in an airplane about to land, everything down below starts to look like it’s part of a little toy world? Little toy trucks driving around, little tiny ant people, houses made of little play bricks?
You can achieve the same effect in your photographs using a fancy schmancy “tilt-shift” lens. (Stay tuned for a $100 alternative we’ll be covering soon!) Or, use Photoshop to achieve the look for free!
We’ve been looking for the best tutorial on the technique. This is it.
