I know that some cameras such as the Olympus M43s have this as an art filter but is it possible to achieve this effect on a regular camera? I have a Pany GH2. Can I just tweak some settings or is there a special lens for this? Thanks in advance!
Yes those are the ones. I must have missed that thread when it was posted.
Something about them, I think it's because everything is so clean, really makes them look like miniatures.
The whole effect is really just a product of our minds being used to a very narrow depth of field in macro photography. When you use the Lensbaby or software to blur out everything but a narrow slice of focus, it suddenly looks miniature.
