Did it work?

My first attempt at tilt-shift. Apparently it's all the rage. Definitely going to need a shot cooler than my BEFORE of my living room... look at these rad shots on etsy.

Now that I've been staring at this photo for so long I can't tell if the effect worked. It's sort of supposed to look like a miniature model. Are you feeling it? Or does it just look like an over- saturated picture of my living room, blurred. Be honest.

It does look like a dollhouse. Only like a dollhouse I've been in, which makes me think of the twilight zone.

totally! i knew what it was before i scrolled down and read your words. i've only seen them with big huge landscapes....never thought such a small scale thing would work but it looks like its ready for some fancy barbies to me.

So, I took some shots when I was in NYC last weekend just so I could try it and I was thinking that maybe I wasn't far enough away, but this shows that you can totally do it from only one story up. It does look like a dollhouse. It totally worked.

P.S. I know you don't know me, but tell Ross I said hi.
P.S. #2 I am so inspired by your photography skills...once I'm out of grad school I'm hoping to have lots more time to develop mine.

Hugh? I was so confused...that is until I read what you wrote and now I sorta get it. I was just confused because it's your house and I'm not used to it making me feel stoned. Never mind!
