“What war do you wish you could photograph?” So begins the commercial for the latest instalment of Call of Duty: Vanguard which will be released in a few days by Activision. The commercial has done what it set out to do and has brought much attention, particularly from the photography world. The game itself was created in 2003 and is a well known first-person shooter game that started out based on World War II. What is different with the latest update is the inclusion of a war photographer mode, where players can run around taking screenshots rather than shooting guns.
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.
