Behind The Scenes Of Surreal Miniature Photography

Posted on Photography 495

We’ve covered the surreal miniature photography of Felix Hernandez awhile back, and now the artist has treated us with one more behind-the-scenes look at his delicate work process with his newest creation The Wardrobe.

The artist searches for inspiration in his dreams: “Our dreams act like a blender of ideas, fears and desires with a touch of who we truly are,” writes Felix. “The music we listen, the images we see, the experiences that leave a mark on us, in our dreams, they all come together to define us.

The final result is a mix of clever practical effects with a bit of photo editing: “If I needed a cloudy background, instead of doing a composite, I went on location. If I needed fog, I used dry ice. If I needed an ancient ruin, I built it myself, and so on. Soon I found myself doing things that I had forgotten or that I would never think I could be able to do, and of course, by doing them, it opened a new door for me… One new door full of new possibilities for creation.

Have you ever thought to look for inspiration in your dreams?
