The Blog of a Young Photographer Part 3!

10 Jun 2014 8:04PM   Views : 1025 Unique : 723

Got a job being a photographer for the company Manhiem? Photographing Honda dealerships cars, hehe combing my love for cars and photography... pretty awesome!.

Rather stressed and busy at the moment one more exam to go, today i had my 2.30h media exam, started off okay one of the easier papers id seen, until the fire alarm went off Sad put my timing right off, but i think it went okay.

I ordered myself a new colin circular polarising filter for my new job, lets hope it does the job.

Anyway i thought id show you guys how i create my miniature photos.

The beginning photo


I start by importing it into CS6, and opening up the field blur, in the option of blur in the filter gallery

I placed the field blur focus in the middle where the buildings are, this technique normally works better if the view point is high angle. Its up to you how much blur you use i use a little under half.


I next brighten the saturation to make it seem brighter like a toy set


After that i cropped it to focus the focus more central


I also darken the contrast to give it more shadow and shape, before burning in some of the buildings


Finished thing!

Blog soon guys
