Independent artist photoshoots Audi R8 using toy car

Snapshot: The artist used a toy car worth a few hundred bucks to photoshoot an Audi R8 supercar worth couple of crores in a perfect way.

Who doesn't love to look at classy images of supercars and make them as wallpaper on their phones and laptops. But as much we love them, we have to know that there is a person behind those stunning images, a photographer who made a good looking car worth your wallpaper. There are good photographers, best photographers and then, there's this guy named Felix Hernandez.

Felix Hernandez, an amateur photographer has created something stunning and made him a talking point in the photography industry, especially the one in automobiles. While the best of the best photographer uses a good camera and an 'actual' supercar for a shoot, Felix did completely opposite of it.

No, he didn't shoot the car with an iPhone, instead, he used a toy car for a photoshoot, that anyone can mistaken for an actual professional photoshoot of a life-size car. The car in question here is a Rs 2 crore+ Audi R8, which has been used to shoot images with car hit by an ocean wave, or sliding on the tarmac.

The Mexican photographer who is well-known for his ability to shoot toy models and make them look like real life, this time chose the Audi R8 supercar for his new project. Felix, who usually uses flour (yes, eating flour) and few lights to shoot his toys, used an elaborate set of toys for the Audi R8 shoot.

He substituted the flour for sand, few pounds of the white powder and few painted boards  to recreate a water splashing scene amidst the ocean waves and tarmac drifts. Obviously, there's a plenty of Photoshop involved to give the images final and polished look, but we can't ignore the creativity of the photographer.

The series of photography has already gone viral and if you have a model car lying around, you can take the task yourself. Some improvised lighting, some flour and some painted boards and obviously, a lot of creativity is all you need for the shoot.

As for the Hernandez's shoot, we are sure Audi guys would love it and set a pretext of saving millions of bucks to create stunning images of their stunning cars. Or maybe, some other manufacturer who loves to do something new.
