We all know the popular Tilt Shift technique that gives objects a "miniature" look, making them appear much smaller than they actually are.
I'm wondering whether it's possible to achieve the opposite effect and if so, how? For example, making a photograph of a lawn appear as if it's a huge patch of grassland shot from a plane. Or making a rock look like it's a mountain.
Are there differences in focus and depth at play here that can be manipulated, or is it all down to other factors like familiar objects, dust, mist etc. that gives the human eye an idea of the scene's "vastness"?
In my specific case, I would like to make a photographic journey through a small creek appear like it was taken from a (miniature) plane. I have a Sony DSC-HX1.
