Photographer Arjun Menon shot this incredible image on his Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra using household objects and action figures. From Arjun:
The theme for this image was time travel, I wanted to show an ancient abandoned landscape, imagine Mad-max with an Indian twist. We see Batman, looking at himself in the past, entering the time portal. I have always been fascinated by time travel, this scene was inspired by the OG “Back to the Future” scene where Morty sees himself using the DeLorean as a time machine and disappearing.
BTS (video coming up on my instagram) The whole idea came about when I realised my photography ring lights could actually pull of looking like a time portal. I used a mist spray for the smoke and a bunch of other props. Used bedsheets with flour on it to recreate a desert look. Used a lot of decorative props at home to give a ancient abandoned civilization look. Had to rack focus from 3 exposures to make one final image 🙂
I’ve been finding creative uses for the random things I find around my home as well. And by creative uses I mean I’ve been smashing them with a hammer. That’s sort of like what this guy did, right? I think it’s safe to say we’ve both been equally creative and productive in quarantine.
