Creating the “miniature” or tilt n shift effect is super easy these days and can add a whole new dimension to a photo. It creates that toy like effect in a photo if done correctly, and the great thing is you can do it in Photoshop in a few minutes.
- Open your photo. Preferably a shot from above as I have posted for greater effect.
- Add a quick mask.
- Add reflected gradient. Drag gradient from point of focus to top of the photo.
- Go back into normal mode
- Add lens blur and play with the radius until you satisfied.
And thats it! Enjoy! I would love to see some of your own examples… 🙂
