Optical Illusions – 12 Tilt-Shift Miniature Faking Photos

Talk about trippy. These are not miniature models, they are actual life size objects. Tilt-Shift miniature faking is a creative technique whereby a photograph of a life-size location or object is manipulated to give an optical illusion of a photograph of a miniature scale model. Most faked tilt-shift photographs are taken from a high angle to further simulate the effect of looking down on a miniature. The technique is particularly effective on buildings, cars, trains and people.
