The unforgettable and epic cultural phenomenon of Star Wars left a number of fans in its aftermath that set off to interpret the universe in their own way. This has led to the conception of miniature star wars photography. Numerous photographers that are a fan of the Star Wars world have captured miniature Star Wars figurines in quite unconventional scenarios and this time a Malaysian photographer, Zahir Batin, has set out to do the same.
He has used his beautiful imagination, humour and talent to pay a cool homage to the legendary saga. He created scenarios with miniature Stormtroopers depicting their actions on Earth. He arranged different miniature figurines and toys in creative ways and photographed them from up close to make it seem like the toys are actually actors in his own Star Wars movie. He used twigs, wires and strings to position the figurines and afterwards, used Photoshop to remove the aids from his photographs. While some photographs are humorous, others create emotion, suspense and drama.
Zahir Batin also shares all the work that goes on in creating a scene on Facebook. As a result, anyone with a bit of knowledge about photography can learn from his techniques and create their own miniature Star Wars photography.
Take a look at some of the Star Wars scenes created by Zahir Batin featuring Sith and the Stormtroopers in their numerous adventures on Earth.
