Shrinking Singapore

The economy is shrinking, so what better time than now to muck around and shrink everything else with some special photo effects.

I recently learned about something called ’tilt-shifting’, which is a photographic technique I haven’t been able to wrap my brain around, but which allows you to ‘fake’ miniturizations.

Photographer Keith Loutit manages to do a wonderful interpretation of Sydney.

And what I did after looking at Loutit’s work was sift through my iPhoto and Flickr collections and pick out a couple of photos that would lend themselves well to ’tilt-shifting’ via Photoshop, and followed the tips I found online on how to fake tilt-shift lens using Photoshop.
