bitter*girls photography

A couple of days ago, I found a great photography post at BLDGBLOG, introducing the work of Olivo Barbieri, who makes aerial photographs of real landscapes that resemble scale models.

It seems like several of the photos featured at the Japanese the bitter*girls blog are made with a similar technique - this picture of the Yurikamome line for instance is absolutely surreal.

N.B. Some of the pictures link to a bigger version at fotologue.jp, which is a site I didn't know. It looks quite nice, but uses a bit too much flash for my taste. Still worth checking out though, as there's plenty of great photo gazing to do.

Seems to be this type of lens that's doing the dirty work. The lens looks like you can tilt it at an angle from the body, which would explain why the vertical center of the photo is in focus.
