Photos By Rikki » SF Bay Area | Freelance Photographer


This is the Church of Santo Domingo at the Plaza de Armas in the city of Cusco in southeastern Peru. I was digging through my photos in Lightroom when I came upon this shot of the plaza. I immediately thought, “how cool would this be if I created an effect that would make it seem that we’re all looking at a miniature city. This effect was produced in post production. Typically I would use my tilt shift lens for this but of course, the TS lens is never in my travel bag. I only reserve the TS for architectural shots but seeing some creative tilt shift photography coming out of the woodworks, I figured I would give it a try as a post effect.

What do you think? Can I convince you to think that what you’re seeing is a miniature version of the Plaza de Armas?
