It’s known as tilt-shift photos and yes it makes everything look like tiny models.

Sorry to be that guy, but pedantry warning:

Tilt shift is a very specific type of photography where the camera's sensor is literally tilted to make certain parts of the frame blurry in a way that mimics a shallower depth of field.

End of pedantry.

Sorry to be that guy but pedantry warning:

The image plane can move on its standard or the lens can also move on its standard, it's not limited to the image plane (or sensor, as you have here). Furthermore, limiting the depth of field via a tilt is generally a poor/overused effect related to the optics the lens and/or image plane. Tilts can be used to actually achieve more depth of field. Here's an article with practical examples!
