Shoot Miniscule Street Art in Macro!

Created with Sketch.


Some street artists think they’re sooo hot just because their work is billboard-size big.

Well, we say Banksy is an overgrown dinosaur. Twist is a hulking mammoth. Even Phil Lumbang sometimes acts like he thinks size matters.

Tiny is where it’s at.

Our new fave Slinkachu’s street art is tiny. How tiny? Put it this way: the guy graffiti tags snails.

After making a teeny tableaux of itty-bitty model people, he leaves them on the street for anybody to find. But first he takes rad macro photos so the wee little scene is never really lost.

Wanna try it yourself? Snag some little plastic people at the local hobby shop and slap a macro lens on your camera or camera phone.

If you prefer staying indoors, photograph tiny people in clever food-scapes, like Mini Miam did. Now all you need is a tag name!

Instagram crush alert! @Paperboyo combines stunningly precise papercraft cut-outs with monuments and landmarks from all over the globe for amazing photographs that never cease to make us marvel (and occasionally chuckle too).

Thankfully, we don’t have to stare at our phones hoping for a new post. Rich McCor (the clever snapper behind @paperboyo) recently released a book of his fantastic photos and behind the scenes peeks at his process.

We still couldn’t get enough Rich in our lives, so we talked to him about his inspiration, his favorite gear and much more. Turns out the dude is just as delightful as his photos!
