    Ran across this today and just had to share it. Be sure to check out his Flickr also.

    You will learn something surprising about this photo by Michael Paul Smith after the jump.




    These photos are from Michael Paul Smith's model photography on Flickr.
    What started out as an exercise in model building and photography, ended up as a dream-like reconstruction of the town I grew up in. It's not an exact recreation, but it does capture the mood of my memories. And like a dream, many of the buildings show up in different configurations throughout the photos. Or sometimes, the buildings stay put and the backgrounds change.
    Visually, this is heading towards the realm of ART. NO PHOTOSHOP WAS USED IN THESE PICTURES. IT'S ALL STRAIGHT FROM THE CAMERA.
    It's the oldest trick in the special effects book: line up a model with an appropriate background and shoot.
    The buildings are 1/24th scale [ or 1/2 inch equals a foot ]. They are constructed of Gator board, styrene plastic, Sintra [ a light flexible plastic that can be carved, and painted ] plus numerous found objects; such as jewelery pieces, finishing washers and printed material.
