Week 31, Day 221, November 30, 2009, What's for Dinner?


Quite a while ago I did a silly photo, and decided to expand upon that theme.  It's a silly photo, but I had a lot of fun with it.

Now it's your turn. 

If you do the same type of photo and blog about it, please post a link in the comments.  I'd really like to see them.

Have a silly day.

Lessons Learned:
  • Developing old themes in creative ways can be a lot of fun.
  • I've been playing with some Tilt-Shift Photography simulations in Photoshop.  Andrew Broekhuijsen first showed them to me.  I thought they were actual photographs of minitures.  They are incredible.  If you have a chance go over and take a look.  None of mine have turned out as good as his yet, but I'll keep trying.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/4 sec, Aperture f/4.0, ISO 400, Focal Length 17 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 27mm, Lens Canon EF 17-40mm, camera sitting on a container of humus for a tripod.

Thanks for the bump, I appreciate that!

So, generally to get a good tilt-shift, your photo needs to be of something large (like a stadium, or city street, for instance ;) ). So pull out some of your old landscape photos or something.

There are some truly astounding tilt-shifts in this Flickr pool. You'll see that the general idea is taking something that's very big in real life, and making it look like a macro shot.

Nice perspective on the photo in this post!

Cool idea. It looks like the camera is for dinner.
