Sometimes when JQ and I do the miniature photoshoots...I wonder if there are professional photographers who have explored such subjects, and ho and behold, I found out about one!
His name is David Levinthal, a photographer renowned for his work with polaroid cameras, and for using toy figurines to make realistic photos...which makes the viewer realize the grey line between fantasy and reality (or something to that effect). I checked out his stuff, and I have to stay it's amazing. Makes me want to get out there to shoot more photos!!!
If you have time, check out his WWII and Iraq War photos, they look great...and his famous works are the "The Wild West" and "American Beauties". In addition, his ice-hockey shots look really awesome too, great composition and sense of urgency/action in his pictures.
His website is found here, and here are some samples of his work, all copyright of David Levinthal.
Enjoy (and happy modelling)!
