Finger Photography: Capturing the Story of Miniature Worlds
Today we are going to celebrate the unsung heroes that are… our fingers. I think it’s pretty safe to say that all articles of Hongkiat are written by using fingers. From clicks to swipes, from tapping to typing, we cannot really do without fingers in this digital age. Our daily tasks will be extremely hard to execute and complete without them, and it’s only fair to celebrate fingers in at least one post, like the one we have today!
With the help of creative re-imaginings and clever tricks of ‘finger artists’, we now can get a look into the lives of the finger people. Check out these 30 impressive photos of fingers depicting very human lives. Full list after the jump.
Note that your fingers are parts of your body too, and they could feel cold too! So get them some nice coats to keep them warm.
Instead of painting directly on fingers, Komusō drew the faces using a software, creating this unique and amusing piece! Check out the moustache on that one!
Catching Some Rays
After months of hectic typing works, it’s always good to catch some rays on the beach. And here’s another finger enjoying the sunlight!
Oh my dear fingy, who attacked you?
Conversation of 3 Fingers
Well, they seem to be having a pretty fun conversation. Also the cool thing about this artwork is that the expressions look so natural!

Even fingers are celebrating Earth day! And it’s so true, we’re all stuck together on the same Earth, like these finger people are stuck together in the same palm. Better make the best of it.
I didn’t know about Purple Day until these nice finger supporters from Cathy86 introduced it to me.
“For sure it’s the middle finger =D”

Awe, aren’t they cutest finger friends?
Don’t always stay in your room, even your fingers know how to bask in the sunlight!
Probably the face that my fingers will show me when I have played too much video games by knocking the keyboard aggressively.

Happiness and Joy
They will always be together throughout their whole life, so why not live it in a happy way?

They share a heart and a hug. Thanks Imadlak for this lovely one!
I Guess That’s Love
It looks like these fingers have a far better love story than I do. No, I am not crying.
And here’s another lovely moment of the finger couple, captured by creator Mupii.
Madam Fifi has a lot of detailed accessories, and she obviously had a very nice skincare treatment.
“These are the kind of expressions I wear every day. And now, so do my fingers!”

Hey, what is that thing behind your back, Mr. Little Finger? Besides the fact that the expressions are accurately illustrated, you could see that Cathy86 has really invested lots of effort to make this work as realistic as possible.
There’s always a naughty one in the band of the hand, can you guess which finger I’m talking about?
Mr. Finger’s Big Surprise
She is speechless with the flowers he has for her. It’s nice to know that some people put effort into making you happy.

He’s coming and he’s invisible… he is Ninja Finger. Epic idea from epic Timegril4468!
Out For The Night
Relax with your fingers when all the work for today is done! 2 super-mini beers please!

Relaxing In A Tub
Nothing like a bubble bath to help a busy finger relax. No more facepalming on the keyboard for today.
Share the Cake
To listen or not to listen? That’s the question for this finger. But first of all, how will it eat the cake?

Enchanting and detailed face illustration is what makes this work really stands out from the rest.
Probably the best-dressed finger of the list! Time to get down on Friday!
The Lost Finger
Whoa… where am I?
I admire Felipe Katsumata for coming up with this really creative idea and ughhh, it looks really painful!

Under My Umbrella
Another work that makes me feel like having a life partner, I envy these fingers and you know why!
Do not underestimate the efforts put into these finger! Though most of them look really simple, it actually takes lots of brain juice to make those boring fingers look really interesting and as lively as possible.
Therefore, a heartfelt thanks to artists and photographers who went so far just to take an awesome photo that cheers up our routine-filled life! Be sure to share with us more touching or amusing finger people stories!
