The Incredible Art of Tilt-Shift Photography

All the photos below are of real places, despite what your eyes may tell you. They may seem like skillfully made children's toys, but these are photographs, taken using a technique called “Tilt-Shift”, in which the photographer would tilt his camera to a specific angle, in order to achieve a miniaturized scene. "Tilt–shift" combines two different methods of movements: The first being a rotation of the lens plane relative to the image plane, called tilt, and the second is the movement of the lens parallel to the image plane, called shift.
