Tilt Shift Miniature Faking

Saw this on a post over at about Keith Loutit using tilt shift miniature faking to make the real world look miniature.

As Wikipedia explains it "Tilt-shift miniature faking is a process in which a photograph of a life-size location or object is manipulated so that it looks like a photograph of a miniature scale model. By distorting the focus of the photo, the artist simulates the shallow depth of field normally encountered with macro lenses making the scene seem much smaller than it actually is. Many miniature faked photographs are taken from a high angle to further simulate the effect of looking down on a miniature. Objects oriented horizontally, such as the train in the first example, make better subjects for tilt-shift miniature faking than vertically oriented objects."

Everything you see in the videos below are life-sized real world things and people.
