A while back, I mentioned a photo editing technique that appeals to the dork in me, known as 'miniature faking'. It makes objects appear a little like miniature models. I don't have the software to do this myself on the computer, but my camera has a setting which can do it. This means I have to do it before I upload the pictures onto the computer... and usually, I don't remember to try this trick until after I've deleted the photos from my camera. Lots of missed opportunities so far.
Anyhow, being a long weekend here, we ventured out west to a friend's barbecue yesterday - about forty minutes away, on long stretches of freeway. The drive back was quite lovely, as there was beautiful golden light bouncing off the hills and mountains. Not an easy thing to capture from the front passenger seat when moving at high speed, and the resulting photos were nothing special... then I remembered the 'play' camera settings and attempted some miniature faking of my own. Although the end results aren't dramatic, I like the added whimsy it gave.
