13 Awesome Miniature Photos from Around the World

With the popularity of our latest photo of the week from Prague, we decided to share a few more of our favourite ‘miniature photos’ from around the world.

The effect is achieved by combining heavy saturation and sharpness with “over blurring” to the areas that are out of focus. In photography circles, this fun technique is called ’tilt-shift photography’, although we created the effect using photo editing software, not with our actual camera and lens.
