Playing with my camera’s Miniature Effect mode at La Jolla Cove

I have  a really fun point & shoot camera:  Canon Powershot S95.  Colors and clarity are great and it has various creative modes, including the Miniature Effect mode, which is my favorite.

Miniature Effect, also known as Tilt-Shift photography, creates some awesome images that look like miniaturizations of the scene.

On this camera, the focus is in a landscape bar or column of the image which you can change in-camera and ultimately focus on what you want.  For this image, I focused a landscape bar, in the middle of the frame (specifically focusing on the people, mid-beach).

The rest of the image fades and blurs, creating a minature effect.

Pretty darn cool, if you ask me!
