Micro Disney

I've been hard at work on my scale model of early Disneyland and I'm now finally ready to reveal it. You will most definetely be impressed!... until you learn that my scale model is only a quick photoshop cheat. But it sure is fun!

WOW, those turned out great.

Great post! I just wanted to add that, for certain images, using the Radial Gradient setting might work better. Just a thought, but you're the artist and your stuff looks great! Thanks for the tips.

Nice to see some quality samples of the fake method. Magnificent. I'd give it a try, but I'm not often all that high above the ground. Google Earth, mayhaps?

Sweet! After originally seeing real tilt-shift photos a while ago, I wondered if a compelling photoshop method could wing it too. Now I know it can be done! Great work!

The Disney example is fabulous. I think the composition and the futuristic monorail makes this look very believable. Much more than the photos in the uk tutorial you link to. You have achieved the suspension of miniature disbelief.

To be completely honest: to me, even the untouched lagoon looks like a model already.

Posted by: Dominik Schwind | Feb 28, 2006 12:25:55 PM

why is the depth of field so shallow? It would be cool if the other 90% of the photo wasn't blurred.

Dominik... in a sense, the lagoon is already a model. Walt described the park as being scaled upwards from model train sets, rather than scaled (slightly) downwards from real life. This lent an exaggerated (and odd) scale to everything in the park... roads, lanterns, mountains, etc.... Of course, I'm not even mentioning the exaggeration of color (... the blue of the lagoon).

This is why I choose Disneyland. (And because I love Disneyland stuff).

Meh.
I have been doing this analogically for a while.
