hello,

the plastic model effect is coming from the perception that we have of a depth of field, that and the compressed effect of a long lens.

we are used to see small DOF on model and when it's applied on real life, we fell a bit lost...
I thought that effect on this kind of scene was the way to go.
by the way, I didn't use a tilt and shift lens, but photoshop.

Romain, I like the images a lot. Good composition, nice feeling.
Looking at your web-site, I'd say you have a little experience in doing that kind of work and more... :-))
Are you the one who did some (or all) of the art work in the movie 'Sin City'?
If yes, congratulations! That's quite an accomplishment.

thank you Angela!
No, I wasn't the only one on that movie, but I worked a lot on the early look development and of course on the creation of hundred of shots.
very nice project to work on!

"Nice project to work on"
Oh yes, I can imagine that. Very exciting project to work on. I always admire excellence in illustration and animation - this movie is one of my favorites - not for the story line - but certainly for its artistic merits.

yes, some very good pictures were done for that movie.
Are you working in the VFX industry?

You're no slouch yourself with this type of image Angela - "Tales of a City - Lyon" on your site! The Photographer was the first thing I thought of when I saw Romain's images!
I'd put a link to it here , but maybe I should leave that to you. Consider yourself encouraged though.  
Romain, nice work.
Bob.

Don't care for the third.  Love the toy train effect on the first two.  And without a tilt shift or lens baby.  Woo!  Must play in photoshop to figure that one out.  Probably need faster glass than I have at the long end.

Romain: No, I don't work in the VFX industry. I'm an appreciating consumer of the products of said industry.

Bob: Thank you. I'm working on it. 'It' meaning the question concerning reality in photography :-)).

very nice color!
what kind of project is it for?
did you use a macro lens or a tilt and shift to enhanced the DOF effect?

Romain, sorry for the delay and thank you for your kind comment.
As we all know, photography depicts reality as is. :-)).
I used a macro lens (nikon 105 mm VR, handheld, no flash). The images show scenes from the large and elaborate miniature train set in Hamburg, Germany. So, no tilt and shift lens or PS work to change 'reality' was needed. The bicyclists for example are only half an inch in size and there was very little light: only dim neon light with a few fast running spots to indicate quite a speedy change between a sunny day and moonlight. I preferred the 'night'.
It is an ongoing personal project about people and what they love to do - like the guys in Hamburg building a dream world of their own.
