One of the nice points about living high up in a residential skyscraper is the view that comes with it. This view, around 150 meters and nearly seventy floors above the streets of Makati, is also perfect for some tilt-shift photography, so here is Makati: Toy Town Edition.
Tilt–shift photography is a technique that can be used to create a miniature look with real life objects. This works best from certain angles, such as high up. The effect can be achieved by using a proper perspective control lens (or tilt–shift lens), or more commonly these days by using digital effects as done by me here:
Below are some more examples of Miniature Makati. Enjoy :)
If you would like to try this miniature look yourself, then there are many apps for smartphones that can do it, the easiest probably being Instagram, which actually has a tilt-shift filter. Try and shoot our object from above to get the effect of looking down on a miniature wonderland. Feel free to share your shots in the comments. I’d love to see them!
