The Making-Of Tiny Planets

Nowadays you can create a Tiny Planet as easily as taking one shot from a pocket camera or even with your phone if you have the right App.


Far from this, my process for the creation of Tiny Planets is a bit more sophisticated as my artwork stands in front of many hours/days of devotion and commitment to create a piece of art that reflects my passion.


Here is how.

4 stops on a 360 rotating head.


4 bracketed shots of 3 exposures at each stop, resulting in 12 raw photos which come with me back to my workshop.

Many hours of dedication in removing distractions and cleaning dirty streets which are always full of chewing gums, cigarette butts, and unfinished road works.

As well as removing many people and cars out of the scene in order to highlight the architecture’s cityscape.

Notre-Dame is no longer up to its past after the terrible fire it suffered in April 2019.
Let's take that feeling as an impulse to move forward and a motivation to learn, question, and therefore, grow.
