So, with my brand new camera came this awesome feature to take photos in "miniature". It's really basically the concept of having one bar of focus with bars blurred above and below. Take a picture of something really big - most of the time somewhere very high up like a cityscape and you've got something that looks like a taking a picture in miniature. I've seen it done with real cars to make them look fake, and in cities and recorded video is pretty popular right now as it's filmed in a sort of stilted stop-motion type thing. It's probably been over used lately, but I don't care, it's kind of fun to do especially since I just got a camera that will do it.
Anyway, I begin my series of miniature stuff with some skylines of Pittsburgh, PA. Only three for now, although I have others, these were my favorite three. I hope you enjoy looking at them since lately I've been working mostly on just perfecting my photography skills. Unfortunately...they have a LONG way to go. But perhaps no one is ever completely perfect with photos? Probably.
I'm also going to post a few more non-miniature photos from my Pittsburgh trip as they just really stood out to me, and I hope you'll consider possibly ordering prints of them for your own enjoyment! I know a few of them will be getting hung up in my own home very soon.
