Using only paper and creative use of photography photographer David Reeves has created one of the neatest projects that I have come across in a while. Taking inspiration from popular movies and tv shows Reeves recreates the scenes with only paper, common household items, and a creative use of camera settings and lighting. The results are simple, yet powerful.
Check out some of my favorites below. But stick around for some cool behind the scenes photos and info after scene images.
Behind the Scenes
Pretty awesome project isn’t it? It is rare that something so simple impresses me so much. I was really curious about just how simple it was and that’s when I cam across these behind the scenes shots… it really makes you appreciate the end results even more.
Just by looking at these behind the scenes shots you can see that just about anyone has the tools necessary to do this, or at least can get them at a relatively low cost. You can see a simple transparent shoot through umbrella, a studio strobe, and then the rest is just paper and tape as well as the occasional blanket.
I’m not sure about you but this is very inspiring to me. I am a stay at home dad when I am not out on photography jobs, so I constantly find myself giving excuses as to why I can’t get out and shoot. I could very easily turn this into a craft project with my son and create some cool shots in the process.
