Model World

Sorry everyone, I’ve been swamped in moving my blog to a dedicated server, which will mean much more room for BIG photos. I hope to get on a steady blogging pattern at least once a week after all the dust settles.

Just to give you something to chew on, have a look at these photos I took. My question for you is, are they real or models? You think you can tell? I’ll post comments as you all do to see how your guessing is going.

  1. My guesses:
    1. Shymkent — real (I’ve been there, who’d make a model of this intersection?)
    2. Medeo — model (the mountains in the background are blurry, and if this was real life, then I think you could get all of the photo in focus, whereas if this is only a few inches/feet long, then it might be too much from your macro)
    3. SLO — real (with the waves crashing???)
    4. Spain — real (I thought this one and Germany were the hardest to tell, they look so much like models!)
    5. Germany — model (it just looks like the foreground buildings are models to me, what can I say?)
    6. LA — real (I hope no one had all those little model cars!)
    7. Budapest — real (it just looks real. The lighting at night helps, I think.)

    How’d I do, Chris?

  2. They are ALL REAL! I used photoshop to fake the blur you get on lenses when photographing tiny objects. It’s called the “tilt-shift” effect, because there are some SUPER expensive lenses that can do this right in the camera, as it can help in shooting architecture.
