Port Louis in miniature

Since I last climbed Montagne des Signaux, I’ve been experimenting with tilt-shift photography through post-processing, more specifically miniature faking.

& the best thing is that you don’t need to be a pro photographer to do this. ;)


I wasn’t satisfied with the initial results (posted on Flickr) as the fakes weren’t realistic enough. The problem was a lack of depth. The blur was applied in 2D, while real-life objects are 3D.


So what I did was painstakingly selecting objects on a single plane and applying the blur accordingly. Photoshop CS6 comes with a new tilt-shift blur tool, but I still prefer the Lens Blur.


The Port.

Les Casernes.


The Caudan flyover.
