Use Papercraft as Photography Subjects!

8

As a Lomographer, I always wanted to take a photo of something unique and unusual. For me, photographing people is not really easy and interesting so I decided to turn a papercraft into a papermodel!

There are different kinds of papercraft, but the basic and easiest one is what i call a Cubee. You can simply download the template of a cubee from Cubeecraft or make a template on your own. Making a cubee is really easy! You just print it on a thick piece of paper, cut it and then assemble it even without glue or tape.

Templates from Cubeecraft

After assembling, it will look something like this:

Now, all you have to do is find a perfect place and camera to photograph it! (I recommend you use a camera that will be able to do close ups since the cubee is really not that big.)

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

    A Salute to the Masters: Sports Through A Plastic Lens (A Tribute to David Burnett)

    The great American photographer David Burnett is famous for his unusual photos of sports competitions. He uses a tilt-shift lens to create miniature fakes, or a simple Holga camera to shoot in black and white. To write this tribute, I used my Holga to take some pictures of amateur sport activities around my city. Take a look after the jump.

    She may be small but the Diana Mini packs a big punch!

    A Salute to the Masters: Ducks (A Tribute to Henri Cartier-Bresson)

    This article is dedicated to arguably one of the most famous street photographers in the world, Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). On this occasion, I felt obliged to write a tribute to this great artist whom I consider the "Mozart of Photography." His photos are inimitable, and to try to reproduce his innate sense of composition, harmony, and choice of the right moment is but an illusion. So I chose an unusual way to pay tribute, the only way possible for me. Take a look!

    Action.. basket time!

    As you can see in my albums, I love to photograph sports events.

It's a funny camera with interesting results! Take a look after the jump!
