Poor art student’s solution to traveling: photography!
Love the tilt shift photos the best -even when they manipulated with saturation and depth of field in post production.
From Wikipedia: Tilt-shift photography refers to the use of camera movements on small- and medium-format cameras; it usually requires the use of special lenses. However, Tilt-shift miniature faking is a process in which a photograph of a life-size location or object is manipulated so that it looks like a photograph of a miniature scale model. By distorting the focus of the photo, the artist simulates the shallow depth of field normally encountered with macro lenses making the scene seem much smaller than it actually is. Many miniature faked photographs are taken from a high angle to further simulate the effect of looking down on a miniature. Objects oriented horizontally make better subjects for tilt-shift miniature faking than vertically oriented objects.
