By manipulating the camera, you can make life-sized objects and locations look like a miniature-scale model. This technique is called tilt-shift photography.
In order to create a miniature effect to images, photographers often shoot the subjects from an elevated angle, thus, creating an illusion of looking over a miniature model. Sometimes, they use cameras equipped with tilt-shift lens, which then simulates a depth-less field. So, if you wish to learn this technique, buying this kind of camera can be a good start.
