Tiny Figures Photography

The summer holidays are a time to relax and spend time with family and friends, however 6 weeks is a long time for some so at my school I created a fun project for the children and teachers to take part in. The idea is to place miniature figurines in a the real world.

This project requires a special type of photography where playful scenes are created with the use of tiny people. It requires an interesting use of skills including forced perspective photography, setting up of the scenes and even miniature figure painting. Here are a few of the images I created to show to my school to get them inspired.

Now that we are back from the holidays the pupils are bringing in their compositions and I look forward to seeing their entries. I will be sharing a few of their best entries when the competition ends next week.
