Fake Miniature Photography

I’ve been seeing this a lot online lately. You can make a real live scene look like a photo of a miniature by using special lenses. I don’t have these lenses, but I did research and found out how you can fake a fake miniature photo through Photoshop. I tried it out and had so much fun, I did it to several photos from my latest trip.

Miniature Waimea Canyon

Miniature Waterfall - doesn't seem as convincing when there's water

Hawaii on my Mind

Its been 5 weeks since my 5 week stay in Hawaii. I’m back in the real world, and doing nothing but school full time. Still, I can’t help but think fondly of all the awesome experiences and wonderful people I met. Of course, having so many mementos surrounding me in my room tends to trigger these memories…

A ceramic honu sitting on the solar panel of my solar lamp

My little yellow truck with a surfboard... right next to my dashboard hula doll which will move to my car as soon as I have it cleaned

A little sign I picked up from Sand People in front of a painting from Cambodia, next to a Balinese crying man sculpture, on top of my favorite travel books.

All the pins I collected from the different clubs.

The jewelry I've been wearing lately...

Postcards on the side of my filing cabinet

Aloha Means Love

My many leis hanging on the bedpost -- 'til I figure out what to do with them

Aloha Hawaii, I’ll be back to see you again someday. Meanwhile, you’re in my thoughts.

Thus, my inspiration for the 1st plate I submitted for Color Rendering Class

P.S. My 2nd plate was of a hibiscus flower, but I wasn’t able to take a photo
