The Making Of Inner Trip
Hernandez Dreamphography is the photographer behind this image. His philosophy, something simple "Shot at studio. Effects done in camera. Lights in PS. "
Inner trip is about a journey to my inner self. These kind of images appear in my dreams. repeatedly enough to taken them out and bring them to “reality”. That’s my way of auto-analysis and sharing my world with others.
Nothing extraordinary but the extraordinary power that represent bringing your dreams to life. And nothing complicated, just a little of imagination, patience and in this case a small source of light.
Light painting is the technique that I used for the shot; A long exposure shot (1 minute) and a small LED lantern to paint the scene with light.
Working with scale models gives me lost of flexibility for creation. I can build and custom the models as I want, then I take them into the studio and with a mix of on-camera effects, building small dioramas and digital art, the ideas and dreams come to live.
You don't need tons of gear to tell stories. In fact, you just need a camera, a tripod, a lantern and yes, some imagination.
