Toy Boat

Camera: Canon EOS 40D; Shutter: 1/500 sec.; Aperture: f/7.1; ISO: 500; Focal Length: 24mm

Lately I’ve been playing around with a technique for using perspective and constrast to make scenes look like something out of a miniature diorama.  In this picture we see a gigantic luxery yacht leaving the port of Hydra in the Greek Islands, but the optical illusion almost makes it look like a toy.  It’s a fun technique that is breathing a bit of new life into some older photos that I didn’t really think had turned out that well.

      It is a lot of fun, and it’s actually pretty easy if you’re familiar with Photoshop. Have you used Photoshop at all?
