Photographer Felix Hernandez has done it again. If the name doesn't ring a bell then you might know him by his amazing miniature photography such as "The Love Car" or his "The Crow & The Dove." These projects has been floating around on the Internet, and we have an exclusive on his new project called "The Wardrobe."
"The Wardrobe" is based on a dream concept and Hernandez was able to bring this concept to life. For this project, Hernandez wanted to go as "natural" or "unplugged" as possible by finding new ways to create an image and not depending so much on the postproduction. Hernandez often uses postproduction software like Photoshop to accomplish his concepts. He has done numerous tutorials on adding most of his effects in postproduction. In this case Hernandez wanted to use a different technique and do everything on set. From building his own stone steps to creating fog with dry ice, Hernandez has accomplished minimizing the postproduction work.
It's not just a matter of doing things different, [it] is also a matter of defining yourself.
"The Wardrobe" is not just a simple image, Hernandez took several images and compiled them in postproduction. The main goal was to minimize this postproduction and add it on camera while Hernandez captures the images on hand.
In essence, "The Wardrobe" keeps its own mystery. Everyone has a door that they need to open and eventually you will find what lies beneath your door. What's in your Wardrobe?
