Mexican photographer Felix Hernandez is known for his amazing photos of toys and miniatures that he builds himself. He relies mainly on practical effects and mixes them with some Photoshop, and we’ve shared lots of his photos here on DIYP. Felix combines his knowledge in photography, design and image manipulation with craftsmanship to create some mind-blowing work. Today, he has decided to tell us more about it: how he does it, where he finds inspiration, and what his work means to him. And of course, he kindly shared plenty of his beautiful images and BTS shots.

Photographer Felix Hernandez is on a real Star Wars kick at the moment. He’s just released the second in his Forgotten Titans series, and it looks even better than the first. The sight of a crashed X-Wing isn’t something you want to run into when stranded in the deserts of Jakku or Tatooine, but it does happen, and that’s what Felix has recreated here.
I know that after seeing The Force Awaken everybody wanted to travel to Jakku. Only problem is, it does not exist. Neither are Tatooine, Naboo and the rest of the planets of the Star Wars galaxy.
Well, if you can’t travel to those worlds, why not create them in a studio? Photographer Felix Alejandro Hernández Rodríguez (previously) did just that. He recreated the Star Wars world in his studio and not once, but twice.
The first creation is a real, detailed, dark, Star Wars creation using realistic small-scale action figures in a series called Sandtroppers.
The pandemic has changed the way we live and work. In recent months my workflow had to adapt to this new reality. Even the type of work I do changed a bit.
With that, the demand to carry out all the creative and production processes from “home or studio” is ever stronger. And to do this, you have to adapt and renew yourself and your workflow. So I did.
These are times of change, complicated, but there are also new opportunities. So I decided to renew my entire post-production battle station adapting it to my unique needs.
Felix Hernandez (previously) is a photographer who turns his vivid imagination into fantastic images. He brings miniatures and practical effects together, sometimes adds a dash of digital manipulation, and turns imaginary worlds into real photos. Strange Thing in the Forest is his latest creation, and Felix once again tells a story through his stunning miniature photos.
Indoor Adventure is a series of images created by Felix Hernandez for BMW Motorrad in Mexico. Shot in miniature (It’s Felix, what else would they be?), the scenes recreate outdoor scenes to show off the motorcycles in a number of environments that many of us aren’t getting to experience right now.
It’s a three-part series, and as always, each comes with some behind the scenes photos and a video to document its creation. And as is usually the case with Felix’s work, all three are both inspired and inspiring.
Anybody who’s followed the work of Felix Hernandez at Dreamphography knows that he loves photographing miniatures. In fact, it’s the vast majority of what he shoots and we’ve covered a whole bunch of it in the past. This time, he’s tackled a subject that’s near and dear to many a gamer’s hearts. Call of Duty.
As usual, he’s taken it to the absolute extreme in each aspect of model making, photography and his special kind of post-work magic. The images were shot using a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and a Canon EOS 1DX Mark III. although he hasn’t said much else about this project’s creation. The behind the scenes photos, though, show the pretty insane attention to detail Felix has for his work.
Mexican photographer Felix Hernandez builds detailed miniatures and creates stunning photos with them. His work just keeps getting better and more elaborate, and his latest project has left me speechless. The Wind is a story about our changing world, and just like the cold wind blowing this evening, it has sent shivers down my spine.
Halloween is a holiday that can spark our creativity in different areas: decorating the home, carving pumpkins, or creating costumes. And of course, it sparks imagination in photographers as well.
Inspired by Halloween, Felix Hernandez has created a spooky photo of pumpkin on fire that looks like it just got out of a horror movie. As always, he used practical effects, lighting, and patience to achieve all the effects he wanted, and he kindly shares with DIYP some details about this spooky shot.
It’s great when you can combine two of your favourite things. Things like photography and Star Wars. It’s even better when you can actually pull off the ideas you see in your head. Not all of us have that ability, but photographer Felix Hernandez sure does. An expert in working with miniatures to create highly realistic scenes, he decided to tackle The Force Awakens.
Officially titled Forgotten Titans I, the scene shows a disabled AT-AT in the desert. In the movie, this is Rey’s home until she’s taken on a whirlwind adventure. Felix combines miniature star wars models with good lighting and a little compositing to create a fantastic final result. And, lucky for us, he posted a behind the scenes video of its construction!
