Tiny Capitals & Mini Cities

Nope, these aren't little toy towns filled with toy people. These time-lapse videos are actually tilt-shift snapshots of life in two booming cities: Oslo, Norway and Kiev, Ukraine.

When Norway reached 5 million inhabitants, Norweigian artist Erik Eivjen decided to mark the milestone with Tiny Capital.

As he notes on Tumblr:

“I’m done shooting! I’ve been working on a project for the last eight days. Since I started, my camera has shot 76,940 photos! Now I have make a video out of all this, which isn’t a quick process either, but well worth it :)”




Tiny Capital by Eirik Evjen

He wanted to capture the rapidly growing capital of Norway, Oslo, as taller buildings started sprouting onto the city skyline, its population thickening with 613,000 inhabitants.

Evjen also notes that he has never been on so many rooftops which was pivotal in the production as he used tilt-shift lenses to create the miniature effect.

Efim Graboy and Daria Turetski from Ukraine had a similar vision for their hometown and project for Kiev. “Because of our sentiments to the city and the incoming spring, we bring you a miniature day in a life of Kiev.”

After five days of shooting and over 25,000 frames shot, they trimmed it down to the 4,500. And after a few more months in post-production, you can now take a mini look at the big city.

    I love the tilt-shif effect. I would love to see a tipster on how to achieve that using the lomo cameras.
