First attempt at creating a clip with the 'fake miniature' effect. Need to refine the gradient masks a bit. Not entirely sure the effect suits here as everything is already pretty miniature from the vantage point.
Thanks to Mike Conaty, vimeo.com/mikeconaty and some folks at the Vegas user forum for helping me sort out a workflow error I was making in getting the mask to work properly.
Stills with D700. Pan was done by unlocking the centre column on the tripod and manually turning the camera a few degrees after each shot. Stills edited in Lightroom, video compiled in Sony Vegas.
All shot from the observation platform of the CN Tower, through the (fairly dirty) windows.
No HDR in this one.
