Slap a little tilt-shift on a video and something as enormous as Niagara Falls becomes a pint-sized plaything.
That’s what seems to be the case over at a delightful YouTube channel that is miniaturizing cities and locations around the world.
Not to worry, because this isn’t a case of a sinister evil mastermind motivated by world domination, rather a channel called Little Big World that is using tilt-shift photography to its advantage.
Its latest treasure happens to be the wonder of Niagara Falls, seemingly shrunk down to toy-chest proportions.
Here is what we mean:
As for an explanation, the channel obliges: “The Niagara Falls are one of the most popular tourist attractions in North America. Check them out in adorable miniature size, yet more dramatic than ever. A time lapse/tilt shift film by Joerg Daiber.”
For those not familiar, the technique is used to make rather large areas and buildings seem minuscule with lens manipulation or in digital processing.
It can be seen in pop culture with videos like the above or in the opening credits for shows such as “Sherlock” and “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
So if you enjoy iconic destinations shrunk down to cute little packages, Little Big World has your back.
Here is just a couple more from the channel.
Until we unlock Hogwartian spells that allow us to get extremely big or shrink things down to very small proportions, whimsical techniques like that above will have to suffice.
The world is indeed a small place. These videos are all the proof of that you need.
