For photographer Felix Hernandez, the art of taking a picture is more than just depicting what’s in front of him — he wants to express what’s inside of him as well. “Ever since I was a kid I used to spend hours alone in my room playing with my toys,” Hernandez wrote on Peta Pixel. Now that I’m a ‘grownup,’ I’ve realized that I never stopped playing and that the only difference is that now I have a camera on my hands.” Fernandez uses small models and special effects to create amazing miniature scenes that look like the real deal on camera. His work is technically impressive and also a lot of fun to look at. See some of his epic scenes (and how he sets them up) below.
