More depth of field

Thanks to a fellow blogger Darkmattr I've discovered a technique called SmallGantics.

The idea is that they take a photo of a real place and adjust the depth of field so that it looks like a model. You can see that the picture of Oxford above demostrates this effect very well.
Given the impressive results, I've decided to take a further look into simulating this effect in Carrara 6 so that the flea film has a distinctively different look between the closeups of the flea circus and the longer shots of the Ring Master or Professor.

Hey, glad you found it useful! Nice idea for a film.... I looked at some of the clips on YouTube.... pretty cool! And I think manipulating DOF will definitely be a nice touch!
