Strictly speaking, HDR is not a miniaturization, but it is certain that it is the foundation on which it can easily be shown as a miniature style. If you want to make it like a miniature, basics are OK if you place something that looks like a miniature in the middle with this HDR technique. After that, it will be pretty much like if you carefully blur the top and bottom. It takes time and effort to try to shoot with a camera, but if you create multiple images with extreme talk, lightness etc. changed from one image and attach them with HDR, it will look like it quickly. Try it.
