A Tiny Man’s Great Journey – Photo Manipulation by Zev

We all would like to show off our skills in Photoshop because of the amazing things you can do with it. And if you put in enough time and practice, the limit of photo manipulations you can create is limited by the sky, or by how small you can go with your subjects.

These are but 12 photos from the portfolio of Zev "Fiddle Oaks", depicting a world much like our own with a slight twist: the subjects are three-inches tall. Join our hero Zev, as he takes you on a tiny man’s great journey.

Build. Gives new meaning to the phrase, building a house of cards.

Air. I love how the character blends into the atmosphere seamlessly, creating a fantasy effect. Also it reminded me of my own dream where I can fly across the world seeking adventure in new worlds.

Around the World. Going on a flight powered by origami cranes must be a lot of fun.

Home Sweet Home. Here’s where Zev’s age gives him an advantage – his imagination is a breath of fresh air. Here’s a fun version of a treehouse, made with broccoli.

Of Springtimes Past. Ferns used to fill the lands in one point in time. This makes it almost a step back in time.

Sail. Are you ready to sail into the wind? Captured in motion: an amazing feat.

Summer Tales. Zev’s processing skill is slick enough to make his manipulation look like a romantic scene from a movie, complete with a boat ride a a candlelit meeting.

Happy Halloween. The cool moment of life that uh, you probably don’t want to experience. On a lighter note, the lighting is rendered completely by candlelight alone.

The Fire. Rise, rise my flames! I command thee (watch where you step).

They Thought the Race. Setting: a branch as a bridge, a creek as a raging river, while the pint-sized hero remains a hero.

From Afar. The squirrel is ready to rumble. Go grandma! (She’s keeping it cool, guys).

Grandfather’s Watch. Ever wondered how he nailed this photo manipulation? Zev is kind enough to explain in this behind-the-scene post!

We’ve neglected to mention something about Zev. He’s the one making all these great photos, and he is only 14 years old. If you are fascinated by Zev’s work, you can visit his Flickr to uncover more of his adventures! What do you think?
