Samsofy’s: Legography

Whilst studying photography in college, me and Matt tried and tested a lot of different techniques. This was anything from pinhole cameras to insanely long exposures to surrealism to tilt shift photography. Tilt shift photography is a creative technique to make a real life subject or location look like a miniature-scale model. It’s one of my favourites.

When I came across Samsofy’s series of photographs called “Legography” my little heart leapt. They not only reminded me of the research I did for tilt-shift in college, but using tiny characters as tiny subjects is something I’d always wanted to try for myself.

Seriously… so clever, so geeky, so brilliant.

There are also a lot of superhero themed shoots, involving our much loved heroes and villains in simple, ironic or everyday situations. He’s clever, he’s funny and his website is definitely worth having a look at.
