Melbourne-based photographer Ben Thomas skillfully uses tilt-shift techniques to turn landscape and lifestyle photos into scenic shots of toy cities for his Cityshrinker project. Ben transforms the skyscrapers of famous cities into model buildings, visually shrinking their towering appearance with a few quickly calculated adjustments to his captured depth of field with additional attention to color saturation. Thomas refers to his approach as a “playful effect.”
