These Clever Quarantine Miniature Portraits Are So Creative

Examples of miniature photos created with household objects.

What’s the best way to get your photography fix while stuck in quarantine? With clever miniature photographs, of course. Check out these impressive photos from Hong Kong-based photographer Ric Tse to be inspired.

Among photographers, Tse might be particularly well suited to keep busy during a global quarantine. While many photographers are experimenting with using simple objects around their home to stay sharp and focused while they can’t head out into the field, Tse’s “field” is miniature sets in his home.

For years, Tse has taken objects around his home like LEGO blocks and figures, small toys, household objects, and simple things like paper bags and crinkled plastic as backdrops and combined them into fantastic scenes.

The results are pretty fun and recently he’s gathered up some before and after shots to show people how his quirky miniature sets are created: like the shot below where Godzilla is ravaging a city of … power adapters.
