Miniature Model Effect
I created the above "miniature model effect in seconds at a new web site called TiltShiftmaker. There are a number of ways to achieve this look of making your photographs appear like a miniature model. My friend and colleague Photographer Chris Klinge has some examples on his web blog that he did in photoshop, see them here under titles of "Some Attempts", "A Few More Miniature Model Effects", and "One More For Today". Chris spent more time and probably had more fun doing this technique than I did because I did mine at a web site offering this effect for free. Its real simple and fast to use and gives acceptable results. Requirements are that your photo's are jpg and less than 4 megs in size. Obviously some photos work much better than others but this has been a real popular effect recently. Try it out HERE.
