Toy Trains: Tilt-Shift Lens Experiment with Trains at in Low-Light Conditions

Toy Trains

Toy Trains: Tilt-Shift Lens Experiment with parked Trains in Low-Light Conditions. Fredericia, February 2015.

Tilt-Shift photography or miniature faking is a creative technique whereby a photograph of a life-size location or object is manipulated to give an optical illusion of a photograph of a miniature scale model.
Altering the focus of the photography in Photoshop (or similar program) simulates the shallow depth of field normally encountered with macro lenses making the scene seem much smaller than it actually is.

In addition to focus manipulation, the tilt-shift photography effect is improved by increasing color saturation and contrast. This simulates the bright paint often found on scale models. Most faked tilt-shift photographs are taken from a high angle to simulate the effect of looking down on a miniature. The technique is particularly effective on buildings, cars, trains and people.

    • Nein, das sind echte Eisenbahnkomponenten auf einer Rangieranlage in Fredericia. Der Spielzeug-Effekt ist das Ergebnis eines Experimentes mit einem Tilt-Shift Objektiv EFFEKT. Also ganz und gar Absicht.
      Ist aber toll dass ich anscheinend damit ins Schwarze getroffen habe, oder wenigstens Zweifel aufkommen liess!


  1. Es sieht wirklich sehr unreal aus. Komische Stimmung, dafür optisch super mit dem grünen Boden. Ob die Autos wohl alles Volvo’s sind? Danke
