Photography / Photoshop resource link: Fake Model Photography, a tutorial by Christopher Phin on how to manipulate images in Photoshop to make the subjects of the photograph appear as if they were miniature models. I tried it out with yesterday’s photograph of Pohlia nutans with subpar results, but if it works for you on a botanical image, let me know!
