have you ever visited portland, maine? here's a great little video titled "mini maine." it was shot with a regular lens and then edited in post-production. it looks like they used an effect called tilt-shift, which is an actual lens but can also be done by editing. the tilt-shift effect makes things look like minatures and i have never seen it done so well in a video as in this one of portland. i'm also a huge fan of time-lapse photography! enjoy!
this video was created by little big world who has a bunch of other videos like this from locations around the world!
