See the cacti in there? Trust me, this picture is riddled with Saguaros! Just click on it for a close up view. Above is a picture of my husband (on the left) and his co-worker overlooking Phoenix from the mountain top. This was taken on the relocation trip the company arranged for us.
So what is Tilt Shift photography? "Tilt-Shift miniature faking is a creative technique whereby a photograph of a life-size location or object is manipulated to give an optical illusion of a photograph of a miniature scale model."
I have been wanting to try this for a while, and this is my first attempt. It's sorta there, but I think it can be better achieved. I just googled "how to do Tilt Shift photography" and went all Photoshop ninja on this image! In addition to the instructions I found, I dodged and burned, blurred and sharpened, adjusted hues and saturation, variations, levels and curves. It was fun, and I'm looking forward to doing more!
Hello! Welcome to my art blog. I'm planning to paint every day in 2015 to improve, learn and see where it leads. Not a painting a day, just painting a little every day for now. Please post a comment or feel free to ask questions. And of course I would love any inquiries about purchasing a painting.
