Mike Hunter

Take one look at Mike Hunter’s photography and try to tell me his miniatures don’t look insanely real. Well, you’d be half right. Hunter hasn’t mastered the skill of creating life-like miniatures, he has mastered the skill of capturing a real-life place and creating the illusion that it is a miniature. I’ll let you take a minute to re-read that sentence. Was that the sound of your mind exploding?

What you are looking at is a real place. Those “figurines” are actually actors dressed as toy soldiers (complete with fake stands their feet). Hunter utilizes a miniaturizing technique called “tilt shift photography” and selects locations based on their “already artificial quality”.

The icing on the cake is that Hunter is only 23 years old! I am officially depressed.

    Actually there is nothing new here – the following tutorial was posted two years ago http://recedinghairline.co.uk/tutorials/fakemodel/index.html

  • these are great! i love miniatures :)

  • my mistake I guess should have called my site “Nothing New Here”.

  • The ‘Harrow Down Hill’ video for Thom Yorke used this technique too. And this blog should be called, “I post what I fucking want: BOOOOOOOM!”.

    Chrisduff – Is this is the same technique they used when creating your “swollen member”, or?

  • i had to read your sentences i couple times. haha! i’m slow.

    this is pretty darn awesome. i’ve seen stuff like this in flickr, but this is one of my faves.

  • haha you have serious talent – you should make a video of yourself making an illustration! i want to see it as it takes shape!
