Photography is becoming a bigger interest of mine, despite never having any free time to take pictures. Og the irony. I’ve not even tried HDR as yet, fake model or tilt shift photography is done through is post processing work and can be applied to photos you already have. Recedinghairline has a guide for which photos are appropriate and how to apply the trick to turn your normal pictures into tilt shift.
It doesn’t take much to fool the mind of the viewer, but there are a few basic rules you can follow to help convince your audience that they’re looking at a railway set rather than the real world; see the section on picking the right photo at the bottom of this page. You’ll need a copy of Photoshop CS or later to follow this tutorial.
