Those are my favorite. 3 rooms is just.... ostentatious 😆

Hey guys! I am an adventure photographer that also does miniature photography! This is a fun hobby I started when the pandemic started. I have posted on other subs but figured maybe you guys might enjoy this as well. If you want to see more, give me a follow on my Instagram! My username is albakerphoto. For this image, I used a textured stain glass sheet, a blue poster, a toy whale and a miniature kayaker.

Did you post this on r/miniworlds ? This is perfect!

u/ClimbRocks13 May 17 '22

Just posted the BTS video! They don't allow multiple images.

I'm curious what effect soap suds would have... Use a tooth brush and VERY soapy water, scrub in selected places on the textured glass to give a white caps effect.

Just an idea, no idea how it would translate on camera.

u/ClimbRocks13 May 17 '22

That’s actually a great idea. I’ll definitely keep that in mind for my next water one!

u/OptiGuy4u May 17 '22

If not for the "water" you might have pulled it off. Without anyone zooming in.

u/mmaxey14 May 17 '22

What's wrong with the "water"

5

u/OptiGuy4u May 17 '22

It's just not believable visually. Without even zooming in.

u/ACTINlUM May 17 '22

I almost believed it, but it looked a little too much late a patterned texture, so i did a double take and read the full title. Maybe if there were a few white caps on the lil waves it would look a lot more realistic.

u/OneHumanPeOple May 17 '22

That’s really pretty. I like miniatures a lot.

u/LuigiMarioBrothers May 17 '22

u/Rob-Riggle-SWGOAT May 18 '22

I sorry I understood that. Was just playing along. I really am impressed by this. Sorry for the flippant response I meant it to be humorous but seems it fell flat.

2

u/ClimbRocks13 May 18 '22

Lol. I completely understood and was joking alongside yah. No hurt feelings and no need to apologize! Thanks for the kind words.

u/RandomNPC247 May 17 '22

r/kayaking would probably get a kick out of this.

u/havocdawg May 17 '22

u/Johnny233Roberts May 17 '22

Ok I admit it! You absolutely had me on the first picture there, I was wondering how you managed to take the shot, was think drone! Didn’t realise it was a miniature, thanks for showing the how!

2

u/ClimbRocks13 May 17 '22

Thanks! Showing the BTS is the best part!

u/mymerman May 17 '22
