Proof that Great Photography has Little to do with your Wallet

Proof that Great Photography has Little to do with your Wallet

Avanaut (aka Vesa Lehtimäki) is proof that creativity, ingenuity and photography know how, are the qualities that make an intriguing photo. With out a camera worth thousands of dollars or pencil thin models, Avanaut has turned out some dynamic shots, using primarily, Star Wars lego figures. His use of light, perspective and inexpensive props, produced some very cool dramatic scenes full of motion. See the results for yourself and check out Avanaut's Flickr Stream for more wonderful shots.

Amazing album!

Great stuff!

Sorry but you don't tell us what he uses for camera and I can't seem to find info about that on any of his flickr photos. Misleading title ?

Brilliant stuff. Kudos to him!
(Exif says is a Canon 400D, but really who cares about the camera this guy understands light & composition in an unique way!)

agreed BRILLIANT stuff and he understands lighting and composition in a unique way. But I have to say it was a bit misleading too. Should include what you shot with and how you accomplished it.

Thanks fstoppers for for a great post. But when you say 'see.. amazing shots and it doesnt take awesome gear' well, tell us what gear it was lol

I think the point was that it looks straight out of the movie but done on a much smaller scale. Not what he shot with.

this needs a BTS video

JUST AMAZING!! Wow, good article!!!

amazing stuff, love this!

he showed how he did these shots a while back. He shoots them while they are in a fish tank so he can get the snow to float. There are some really great toy photographers out there and he is one of them.

Been following avanaut since a while on Flickr, his work is just impressive and stunning. Not quite sure at all on how he does it, but whatever it is, secret recipe or public.. he's got a talent. Surfing his flickr stream can become highly addictive :D

Holy smoke! This is some SICK stuff. Looks real and unreal at the same moment.
