Special Effects

Some of the things the new toy can do...pick a colour and only show that, making the rest of the picture black and white. You hover over the colour you want and select it. These two came out quite well. Some strange effects with half coloured apples and things-not that pretty but fun!

Fish eye lens effect.
Looks like a small whirlwind has hit the garden.

This is called 'miniaturize effect' which I think would be more apparent on a landscape maybe-the top and bottom of the picture is blurred. If I ever get around to doing the interiors of my dolls houses I will use this and make the miniature look even smaller!



Vibrant colour effect. This small tree is growing up through the decking-the cut down tree still sends up the odd one. I will pull it out soon but it looks quite cute at the moment. The catfood box contains pieces of amber coloured glass that I am going to put in a pot or something soon.

Congratulations on your new camera! It is good to experiment with everything it will do--I still haven't learned mine completely because I don't do that very often, and it's not a very complex model. That black & white effect is snazzy!

That is so cool what you can do with your new camera! I especially like the miniaturize effect.

I remember seeing a tutorial on a website on doing tilt shift photo effects w/ a regular camera and photoshop, but I never tried it (because I'm a lazy cow). It's so cool that your camera can do that right off the bat.
