During these self-isolation days, there have been all sorts of challenges on social media. To be quite honest, most of them annoy the hell out of me, but I have finally found one that I really, really like. Getty Museum in L.A. has recently challenged its followers on Twitter to recreate their favorite artwork at home. The results quickly came coming in, and they’re as funny as it gets.

Pinterest is the place where many brides-to-be search for inspiration. So, when Alyssa Snodsmith saw a cute couple photo, she wanted to recreate it with her fiancé during their engagement shoot. However, it didn’t really go as planned. Their efforts were totally messed up, but photographer Chandler Lefever was quick enough to capture the hilarious fail. The resulting photos quickly went viral, and they gave all of us at DIYP a good giggle.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. On 20 July 1969 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong set their feet on the surface of the moon. And in 2019, many people have paid tribute to them in all sorts of ways. Hungarian photographer Lampert Benedek was one of these, and he did it in his recognizable fashion: with LEGO.
Lampert used the popular toy bricks to recreate the iconic photos of the Apollo 11 mission. He kindly shared his work with us, as well as some backstory. And since he used mainly practical effects, the BTS images are as fun as the finished ones.
With the exception of the Windows XP wallpaper, the macOS wallpapers from Apple are probably some of the most recognisable photographs out there today. Often, we sit at our screens, seeing landscapes like these, wondering what it would be like to see them in person.
YouTuber Andrew Levitt certainly thought that. So, he teamed up with friends Jacob Phillips and Taylor Gray and then sit off in search of those exact locations to recreate the images for themselves. And, they documented the trip so the rest of us could tag along.
Stranger Things has won the hearts of millions of viewers across the globe. Its aesthetic, story, atmosphere, and acting didn’t just create a tense and emotional journey, but they have also been an inspiration to artists. Lampert Benedek is a Hungarian toy photographer who was inspired by the popular TV show. So, he got a LEGO kit, some props, lights, and a camera and recreated some of the most exciting and spooky scenes from the show. Most of the photos were done entirely in-camera, and Lampert shared with DIYP how he did it.
The third season of Stranger Things was launched four days ago, to the joy of millions of fans. The popular TV show is really inspirational in terms of lighting, transitions, costumes, and so on. But there’s one more thing – its minimalistic, eerie opening sequence. If you wanna try and replicate it, Javert Valbarr of FXhome will show you a tutorial to help you do it.
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!
Actress Emilia Clarke is best known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones. But in a recent video from Vanity Fair, it seems that she has found a new calling. Her alter ego is “Barbara the businesswoman” and she recreates cliché business stock photos. And I gotta say – she nailed it! And she also made me laugh out loud.
