Shortlist; Playing in the House by Felix Hernandez
2020 was a very difficult year for many people and we commercial photographers were no exception. Playing in the House is a selection of some of the photographs I produced at home during lockdown. All were created using scale models and miniature settings that I made, as well as photographing common objects I had within reach. I experimented with effects such as water and smoke, and played with forced perspective and focus stacking. I also created printed backgrounds for the miniature scenes and applied some digital effects. The images are creative and experimental, combining the analogue world with the digital world.
