A "Model" Fenway Day

"People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.

Rogers Hornsby

 

A tilt-shift "Collabo" with the partner in crime in honor of opening week of Baseball season. I was hoping to create the illusion of a replica Fenway Park in the old toy/model format.

    The fake-ness of the photo is obvious because there is no clear line of focus that can be followed from one side of the frame to the other. If this were a real "tilt shift" photo there would be a perfectly sharp area to the left of the stadium.

    Like Kottke, I never tire of this gimic either!
  • Al Power 7y

    Lovely work. Looks like you were really high up - where did you shoot this from?
  • Joel Price 7y

    I never tire of this "fake model photography" technique. I love it

    "Fenway Park, in Boston, is a lyric little bandbox of a ballpark. Everything is painted green and seems in curiously sharp focus, like the inside of an old-fashioned peeping-type Easter egg." (John Updike, "Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu")

    This is fantastic. I also wanted you to know, in case you don't, that Deadspin.com is using it as a part of an blog post titled, "Why Your Stadium Sucks: Fenway Park". This post was done Friday August 21st.

    This is a fantastic shot of a great ballpark. I hope you don't mind that I used it as a backdrop for a fun photo that I did for the 100 Possibilities group. I have properly credited and linked back to this shot. If not OK, please let me know.
