So the following isn’t really a model, but I have always enjoyed trying to make the appearance of a model. Typically you can do this with a Tilt-Shift lens, but since I don’t own one, Photoshop will do just fine.
The trick to get a decent looking tilt-shift is the viewing angle for which you shoot from. To get a better looking tilt-shift or miniature look to what you’re shooting you need to shoot it from above. Here Keith and I stood up at the grassy area at the Stanley Park Tea House and looked down upon 3rd Beach. The steeper the angle of attack, the better of a miniature-feel it has. Another trick is to bump up the saturation of the image after you’ve applied your lens blur at the appropriate angle.
For a slightly better explanation of how to create a tilt-shift look to a photo using Photoshop, check out the post I wrote a little while ago.
