How to Photograph the Galaxy…in 3D!


The minute Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic takes off, you’ll be first in line. Where else can you get a better photo of the Milky Way than in space?

‘Til then, you’ll have to bring the stars down to Earth.

That’s what Ignacio Torres did in his photo project Stellar! He simulated an awesomely convincing galaxy with confetti, dust, and a 3-D camera (that’s where the wiggle GIF comes in!).

The combination of floating people and sparkling clouds is supreme space eye candy.

Here’s how to make your own — Have your friends jump and throw the flour and confetti at the same time. The flash will get the confetti to sparkle like stars and catch your friend floating in space! Meanwhile, the 3-D camera (see our DIY version) gives your galaxy the depth that makes it look real.

Your friends will officially be the first space tourists, and they won’t even have to buy a $2million ticket. Rawk.
