Moose's TipWhen shooting in miniature mode, you’ll want to shoot at the highest vantage point while looking down on your subject.

Higher vantage points create spectacular “miniature model” effects…which can make cars, trains, cities and even humans appear microscopic.

Using miniature mode creatively, you can also mimic a shallow depth of field…

Photographer Nan Palmero (photo gallery) used miniature mode to creatively show the battlefield at the Alamo. He turned an ordinary tourist shot into something that tells a story. Great job Nan!

Hope you enjoyed this S95 tip-torial…happy shooting!
