Tilt-Shift Photography
Real Life Stuff Made Small
Tilt-Shift Photography is a technique to make life-size images look like miniatures. It's easy. (I just followed along with a tutorial on the Web.) The trick is finding the right photos to use it on. A high angle looking down works best. (It simulates looking down on a table of miniatures)

The photos shown here were from a stock photography CD. The images were then manipulated in Photoshop CS4.
