Cancun-based commercial photographer, designer and digital artist Felix Hernandez, who specializes in dream-like imagery, usually combines camera effects with digital art to bring his scale models to life. This time, he wanted to "unplug" and create an image that didn't depend on post-production, such as using Photoshop, to achieve the effects he wanted. Just like his previous work, he makes the scale models by hand but all the effects were done on camera and shot on location. Watch the video above to see how he did it.
The Wardrobe is not a one shot image. I did take several images for later and combined them to create the final art. But my goal was to achieve all the effects and images for real on camera. For that, if I needed a cloudy background, instead of doing a composite, I went on location. If I needed fog, I used dry ice. If I needed a ancient ruin, I builded one myself, and so on. Soon I found myself doing things that I had forgotten or that I would never think I could be able to do, and of course by doing them, it opened a new door for me… One new door full of new possibilities for creation.See more of Felix Hernandez's work on Behance.
