This personal project of mine was inspired by the classic
“Honey I Shrunk The Kids” movie. The final composition
involves forced perspective and digital manipulation to
create the illusion that I’m only a few inches tall,
lounging on my laptop. Lighting and shadowing were crucial
in this image in order to sell the image as authentic.
How I Made It
This was a quick project I did in the middle of the night
when my creative juices were flowing! I lifted my mattress
off my bed and used the frame to sit on as I took photos of
myself until I was satisfied with the perspective. I then took a
photo of the scene I would be sitting in and stitched all the
layers together in Photoshop.
