The Big Money Project Uses a Giant Coin to Create Deceptively Small Photos

It could be awhile before I can trust any tilt-shift photography after seeing Skrekkøgle's Big Money Project. The Big Money Project is a photography project that combines a giant 50-cent euro coin with tilt-shift photography. The results are deceptive to say the least.

The coin used in the Big Money Project was built on a scale of 20 to 1. This makes the coin huge and has the added effect of making every object it is photographed next to look really, really small. Combine this massive coin with a tilt-shift lens and you have a series of photos that makes everything from a Mazda Miata to a phone booth seem shrimpy. You can check out photos from the Big Money Project here. FYI, Skrekkøgle is taking orders for those of you interested in purchasing your own giant euro 50-cent piece.
