O fotógrafo Arjun Menon (@artleavesamark) resolveu recriar cenas de Batman com Action figures. Além disso, ele ainda conta com o auxílio de seu smartphone. O celular em questão é o Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra e o resultado é realmente surpreendente.
Menon também já se inspirou em filmes como O Exterminador do Futuro e em personagens como Wolverine. Seja através de montagens de fotos ou até mesmo usando outros tipos de bonecos, o importante é que o resultado final proposta pelo fotógrafo é incrível e faz belas alusões a grandes produções do cinema. Confira abaixo algumas recriações acerca do herói da DC Comics!
A imagem mostra Batman olhando para si mesmo no passado. Segundo o fotógrafo, a ideia surgiu depois que ele observou um anel de luz e espirrou água em cima, criando, portanto, uma neblina. Arjun ainda contou com o auxílio de coisas como lençóis, decorações de casa, além de outras coisas.
O tema desta imagem foi a viagem no tempo, eu queria mostrar uma paisagem antiga e abandonada, imagine Mad-Max com um toque indiano. Vemos Batman, olhando para si mesmo no passado, entrando no portal do tempo. Sempre fui fascinado por viagens no tempo, essa cena foi inspirada na cena OG “De Volta para Futuro”, onde Marty se vê usando o DeLorean como uma máquina do tempo e desaparecendo. A ideia toda surgiu quando eu percebi que as luzes do meu anel de fotografia poderiam realmente parecer um portal do tempo. Usei um spray de neblina para a fumaça e vários outros adereços. Usei lençóis com farinha para recriar uma aparência de deserto. Usei muitos acessórios decorativos em casa para dar uma aparência de civilização antiga e abandonada. Tive que desviar o foco de 3 exposições para fazer uma imagem final

The Batcave 2042! . . This image is photographed with household objects, Action figure and scale model car. I'm fascinated how there have been so many iterations of the batcave over ages. From the 'animated series' to 'Batman Beyond', the batcave has seen itself evolve. I wanted to create my own version based on futuristic dystopian times. Here, I show a lot of tech being involved in the architecture as well. . The video was made with help of my talented friend @shahidgire , do not forget to follow his work! . . BTS (Swipe for video) There are a lot of hacks I used for this one. I used a mirror floor to give shiny finish to water I made. PC mother boards were used as one side of the ceiling, AC cover as the other. (swipe for complete list). Since the figure was very small had to focus stack this image. The headlights and bats were added in post (obviously, don't have such tiny bats with me). . If you enjoyed this, don't forget to share 🙂 Cause I have heard that's how it works. As always couldn't have made this without feedback and help from @hungryalisha and @sibyeduthafoto The hardest part of the entire process was cleaning up. ? . . @hbo @hbomax . #actionfigures #joker @behindthescenegram #toyartphotography #createwithsrishti #articulatedcomicbookart #acba #epictoyart @french_toy_love @epictoyart #toy #toyunion #batman @onlyfilmmaker #diyphotoshoot #kaiexposeyourself #articulatedphotography #createathome @cinematogr #filmmakersworld @filmlights #creativequarantine #marvelactionfigures #op_h #batmanjoker #toysyndicate #dccomicsart #breakfromboredom #toyaremydrug #batmanart #quarantineproject #dccomics #batcave @camera_setups

FREE FALL. This image is shot with action figures and household items only. . . I was listen to this song by 'Gorillaz: plastic beach' when this idea popped into my head. Joker falling down a sky scraper and yet showing no signs of fear or remorse! Afterall being a sociopath come with their own ups and downs. BTS (swipe for video): For this image I wanted to show a realistic city scape, something that wouldn't be too distracting. Realistic sets make bigger problems I realised. I began by choosing my skyscraper, needed a long grill that looked symmetrical and could pass light. Tada, found my rooms AC cover as the perfect candidate. I used it's filters and the other two surrounding buildings. Found a few more things like Keyboards, Bluetooth speakers, dumbbells as buildings. Then made a road map with rice lights. Added candle leds as building lights. Loved the way this shot came to life with practical effects! For the video my freind @shahidgire helped me out, thanks so much man, he's a kick-ass artist. Follow him! As always a lot of the effort and feedback from @hungryalisha and @sibyeduthafoto. Hey @joaquinlphoenix @hamillhimself @willsmith Hope you enjoyed this, a lot of effort goes into making these.

MIND GAMES! Bored at home during quarantine, I started photographing my old action figures with household objects to create cinematic scenes. Few images in, I knew Joker Vs the Bat had to eventually happen , arch nemesis in one image. This one had to be special. The tale that has been told a million times, I was exploring what can I bring to the table (literally) that is a unique perspective. After a few discussion with @sibyeduthafoto, froze the idea. This was not an easy task, to literally recreate a shattered city scape on my dining table took a long time and conceptualization. I was assembling props and fine-tuning the concept to avoid errors. I used my old PC CPU's a graphics cards and ton of other things as some of the details of buildings. I wanted to show Joker as a larger than life character so had to photograph him separately and combine multiple exposures for one image. This took a whole night to nail with the smoke (hair spray + Steam iron + some in post). I tried to document a bit of my process this time with a BTS video, don't miss. If you find this interesting, don't forget to share with others 🙂 Thanks to super patient @hungryalisha and @sibyeduthafoto for all their inputs 🙂 Image: @artleavesamark . . . #actionfigures #actionfigureaddict @behindthescenegram #toyartphotography #toyartgallery #joker #articulatedcomicbookart #ACBA #epictoyart @french_toy_love @epictoyart #toy#toyunion #Toy4life @onlyfilmmaker #mycamerabox #kaiexposeyourself #articulatedphotography #createathome @cinematogr #toyplanet #filmmakersworld @filmlights #creativequarantine #marvelactionfigures #op_h #batmanjoker #toysyndicate #thetoysyndicate #toyartistry #toyaremydrug @complex #Epictoyart #breakfromboredom #Quarantineproject #macrophotography @camera_setups @camera_setup_club

When brain meets brawn! . "I could kill you… but death would only end your agony, and silence your shame. Instead, I will simply …BREAK YOU! Broken…and done." -Bane Possessing a mix of brute strength and exceptional intelligence, Bane is often credited as the only villain to have "broken the bat" both physically and mentally. It's with this thought that I tried to approach this image. In this image I wanted to show batman being thrown through the wall to the otherwise. I didn't have a super detailed batman figure, so instead I used Wolverine 😀 oh yes, the perspective and lighting really had to convey that this batman indeed, one thing that helped is that batman isn't really showed with a ton of detail (Dark knight you see). This time I wanted to show some snow in the backdrop so I used a combination of shaving cream and corn flour. Again steam iron with strobe light for some of the smoke, a bit was filled in on post too. I made quite a mess at home with this one. ? .
