Underwater Miniatures


Hey guys, I ran across this photoset on Flickr that I thought you might enjoy. They are fairly relevant to this forum.

Note: These are not photos I took, they are from photographer Jason Isley.

The photographer wanted to do something completely different with underwater photography and came up with the idea of using miniature figurines to set up scenes. Some are pretty funny, and towards the end he has some nice environmental messages.

Here's the photoset: http://www.flickr.com/photos/3028306...th/8476438944/

This might be a fun idea to try in an aquarium environment!

I love the Underwater Invasion ones! Like my favorite monster movies - lol

Umm, were those "dead" fish really dead? I suppose they were natural casualties and he used the opportunity?

I'm pretty sure that was the case. Seems like he came upon them and used them to do a Public Service Announcement type thing. The photographer seems to be pretty "pro-fish" and "anti-things that hurt fish", hehe.

The one about plastic killing fish - while he had plastic people making the point - made me laugh in a sick way...
