Those who’ve browsed around our video collection know that we’ve long been enamored with the work of mysterious Tokyo photographer darwinfish105: we shared his giant robot shots in 2013, featured what we call the Tokyo Pastel Diorama Series (#1 and #2 - both awesome), totally dug his Panasonic GH4 time lapse piece from several months back, he rubberized our brains with the Inception/Blade Runner lovechild known as Mirrored Tokyo, and he even showed us the beauty of of a cloudy day in 4K here in the big, big city. The hits just don’t stop.

This latest effort, one we’re putting in the Tokyo Pastel Diorama Series, once again makes the world’s largest city look quaint and cute in one composition, vast and ominous in another. In this and similar works, the magic of a great photographer with some executive-level vantage points produces something slightly unreal...like a city built to ⅛ scale. How does he do it?

Tilt-Shift & Time Lapse

...wherein a photographer tilts/shifts a camera’s focal point, and then shoots for a good long time, and then speeds it up to lapse the time: when the subject is distant, the method softens edges and most of the colors. Yes, as per usual we know that's a bit of a cop-out explanation, but come on now - if you really need to know the fine print, then you’re probably a photographer and already know, and if you’re not a photographer, but still want to know, then you probably should become a photographer, yeah?!
