View Full Version : Trying to simulate the look of a photo

04 April 2002, 04:30 PM
Hi there,

i've played around with colors, brightnes, sharpnes, kontrast... to achieve a photo-like look
At least the pics made with my brother's digicam look similar to this ;)

Very nice indeed!

As a Big DOTT fan - this appeals to me on a number of levels!

:bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Excellent and original idea and very well executed.

Love it.:love:

hmmmmm, very nice, I like it, BUT!
-Something you did on this, makes it blurred, and you can't really see where exactly the camera focuses.
-I'd fix the paper that's used for "ground" for the toys.
-The contrast between the shadows and the light on the toys is too great. I mean in real life, you would prolly see just some faint shadows under the table, not like the dark ones you have.

All in all, it's very nice, I like the attention to the little things in the playset, even though most of their detail isn't showing. The textures are also very nice.

In my opinion, and through a few experiments, i've found that by incresing the contrast of the picture, you get a more realistic image! Try incresing the contrast by about 25%:hmm:

thanx for all comments

right, some parts would not be that dark in reality
will fix that
the grass is also quite unreal

what about that ground? something wrong?

the low contrast fits better to a normal unedited photo by a cheap digicam than high contrast

maybe i'm going to rebuild some more DOTT stuff ;)
