This Guy Shoots Epic Action Scenes With Tiny Models He Makes

Vatsal Kataria is master of his own tiny universe.

Using handmade sets, Kataria shoots scenes that look like they belong in a Hollywood action movie. The process begins with a concept. Once Kataria can envision the end goal, he begins experimenting with materials to build his tiny scene.

The full processes takes anywhere from 3 to 15 days, depending on the detail needed in the shot.

"It's just a myth that you cannot do great photography without great and expensive props and utilities," Kataria says of his experimental process.

"It's endless what you can do with it and do it the way you want to."

Shooting commercial quality images doesn't always require a big budget. According to Kataria, you can build a full universe with basic craft supplies. You just have to be inventive.

"I do not use any expensive ready to use props and dioramas. I make all the stuff I use in a set of the very minimum resources. I usually use plaster of parts to create mountains or rocks and some old paper to give basic shape of hills. I mainly used polystyrene sheets and mixture of plaster and black paint to make roads.

Other things I use are some polystyrene sheets, homemade foliage, baking powder for snow and some paints. I used very basic supplies so that if someone wants to try they can. I also used photoshop to bring out the beauty. So it's very simple and very exciting."
