Since I don’t watch much TV, this is how I waste my spare time.

 

I saw this neat trick done on a friend’s Facebook photo album, and on a post from The Projectivist.

Everything looks better miniaturized.

Above is a photo I took from a boat on the Hudson River, of Manhattan. Not my best photo, but awesome as a miniature!

Here is a photo from the Top of The Rock, of Manhattan. Using a tilt shift is great on skyscrapers, especially lots of them.

BTW, I hope you guys like the new August ’09 header! I know it’s technically not correct, since it’s supposed to be a negative, and there’s positive images on there. Plus the images are all square when they should be rectangles. But you get the idea, I know you do. I spent 2-3 hours making that header when I should’ve been doing a lot of other things I needed to do. So enjoy it!

   

This is the Brooklyn Bridge, I think. I’m ashamed I am not absolutely 100% sure which bridge it is. Please feel free to correct me.

This is Bixby Creek Arch Bridge on the West Coast, of Highway 1, California.

I suppose I should post a quick tutorial on how to get this cool effect in Photoshop, eh?

  1. Well, there’s more than one bridge in that picture. The one in the foreground is the Brooklyn Bridge, and the one in the background is the Manhattan Bridge. So, you were right about one of them! :)

    I love these photos. They are so cute!!
