The world of little

This is a shot of my entomological illustration class at RISD, as seen through a fun little application called Tiltshifter which makes photos look like little model train landscapes. It works best with a small central subject and wide foreground and background. I couldn't resist trying it on some of my Alaskan photos....

An idea is fermenting in my brain concerning this world of macro, a big lens, dioramas, landscape and paint. I hope it's the kind that ages well, since I see a very busy spring coming up, lots of paintings already circling the runway and so little time!


  1. Funny you should mention that little model train landscape look; I was just talking about it last week with someone. I've noticed it in advertising lately. Very cool. Sadly, when I click on your highlighted "Tiltshifter", I get a NOT FOUND ON THIS SERVER. Is it, by chance, an Apache application? Apache and Apple never made an agreement, so it's not available on Macs. I'll look for something comparable. If you hear of anything (in your copious free time), let me know.

  2. Thanks Sam for pointing that out, I should know better not to check my links. It's fixed now... have fun with it!

  3. Thanks Kathy! Works like a charm.


I value your comments, please let me know what you think!
