Tokyo Was Made For Giant Monsters, Giant Girls And Camera Tricks
For decades, Tokyo has been a battlefield. Huge monsters and heroes duke it out, crushing cars like bugs and destroying buildings like they were made of toy blocks. But it’s not only miniature models that make Tokyo perfect for monsters. Camera tricks do the job, too.
Above is a series of photos that use tilt shift photography to create the diorama effect — which makes photos look like small-scale models. Besides Gamera, the photos also show jumbo-sized anime heroines like Kirino Kosaka from ‘My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute.’
Digirama, as they are called, are not new. However, new tilt shift software helps photographers and hobbyists pull off even more realistic digital dioramas.
