photo: fake miniatures

Tiny Ben.

I have crack jackson jr. on flickr to thank for introducing me to the notion of fake miniatures. There are various techniques for simulating the miniaturisation – the one I’m trying out here uses selective focusing on either PShop or Gimp (I’m using the latter) to approximate the action of a tilt-shift lens. I’m new to the technique it’ll take a while to figure out how to do it. Not least is the problem of how to install plug-ins to the Gimp on OS X
