Modelmaker creates an abandoned VW microbus

Starting with an off-the-shelf model of a VW microbus, Hernandez Dreamphography creates Inner Trip, a diorama of a weathered VW on a wintry field.

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.
