Michael Paul Smith Forced Perspective Model Cars 1

Some guys never grow up. For example, I can’t walk by a Hot Wheels toy car display without coveting those tiny 4-wheeled machines – something about my youthful car lust comes back to me. Michael Paul Smith is doing something about it though. This model maker, collector and photographer has been creating inspired forced perspective shots using his small-scale vintage cars, making them look as real as a movie set – or reality for those who remember.

miniture places around the world 3

When it comes to this world, there are people who see it as vast and locations as distant, and there are some who see it as miniscule. In relation to the solar system and galaxies beyond, our planet is indeed tiny in comparison… and the humans that inhabit it are even smaller.

Real Underwater Humor- Without Photoshop

Jason Isley 1

What does Seaweed say when it’s stuck at the bottom of the sea? “Kelp! Kelp!” If you’ve ever eaten Laffy Taffy, then you know there are lots of silly sea jokes, but what’s not funny is the damage that humans are causing to our most mysterious ecosystem. Underwater photographer Jason Isley sees this first hand, so he decided to bring some toys along with him to capture it firsthand. He creates comical scenes, like a sea slug getting a speeding ticket, along with some showcasing more serious environmental concerns, like ghost nets, litter, and fish bombing. Although he does occasionally brighten some images with Photoshop, the miniature scenes are actually set up underwater. Isley is the co-founder of ScubaZoo, a Malaysian underwater filming and photography company. [Read more...]

Tuesday 10.23.2012 , Posted by

Already known for an award-winning stop motion film, he has now set his talented hands to the task of creating a series of sculptures: “Sets for a Film I’ll Never Make”. Each astoundingly detailed model is constructed using sliced cardboard and PVA glue – mediums you would hardly associate with such precise work. [Read more...]
