Aspleaf's control huntAspleaf posted some "control hunts" yesterday. The idea is to match up the controls to the map. On the color map it is pretty easy.
Aspleaf recommends using a black and white map to make it tougher.
Fake miniature photography
Clem commented, "How do you do this? It is a cool effect."
I used The Gimp and followed these directions. Here are directions for using Photoshop.
I was inspired to play around with fake miniature photos after seeing some photos in the NY Times "Play" magazine. Here is an audio/video presentation by the photographer who shot the photos in Play. The photos from the U.S. Open tennis (about 2 minutes into the presentation) really caught my eye in the magazine. The NY Times photographer, Vinent Laforet, used a tilt-shift lens to get the images. That works better than the software, but a tilt shift lens costs a lot.

If you do you are really good :-)
The picture with the coloured maps are just a fragments of the whole map. It was just to show how my original looks. For some unknown reason all pieces came out with the same controlnumbers. Weird.
I have a new map (in colour) up on my site that you can print out and hopefully find the controls on.
What a great blog, you should visit my site also.Post a Comment
