tilt-shift-miniatures.jpgWhen I first saw these by Bitter*girls {featured during Japan week}, I questioned if they were miniature models. It turns out there’s a technique in photography called tilt/shift that makes aerial photographs of real scenes look like miniature models – the effect is charming, but expensive, because you have to buy a tilt-shift lens. You can ‘fake’ this effect in Photoshop [my favourite magical software] with this tutorial by Simon Mackie (there’s even a flickr group devoted to this technique).
