This is an example of a
Single-Photo Imagineering

Imagineering: a verb; The activity of devising and implementing new or highly imaginative concepts or technologies, it was a term coined by Walt Disney to describe the people and the process in designing the Walt Disney theme park attractions. Or as it would apply to Single-Photo Imagineering, the process can be as simple as taking a single image and re-working it to satisfy a clients needs.

In this project a photo base was used to create an imagined image, like one that might resemble a photo taken of a small town built for a model train set.

From the base photo several steps are taken with snapshots saved along the way. These snapshots make it easy to step back and try another path. Ultimately after various changes and some trial and error we end up with Tiny Town.
