When I first saw these photos, I totally thought they were pictures of miniature toy models or something. I was surprised to find out, however, that they're actually pictures of real people and places. The photographer has used a Photoshop technique called tilt-shift to create the fake miniature effect. I found some simple instructions on how to do this form of manipulation here. I'm excited now to go out and shoot some photos of my own to play around with. Hopefully, they'll turn out as cool-looking as these are!
