Half Awake – Diorama Photography by Erin Tyner

Rather than waiting for a scene you’ve imagined to happen, you can use Erin Tyner’s Half Awake series as inspiration and create a diorama of the moment you wish to capture. “Working in a miniature scale allows me to depict a range of complex emotions in a playful manner,” Erin says. Although the dioramas are artificial, Erin’s pictures spark genuine emotions and show characters that are captivating and true to life.

    I like the idea of this project! Very expressive!
    Emotions of the characters are very clearly spelled out in their figures.

    This is something I’ve been wanting to try, in my own way of course because this is Erin’s style and her concept comes across so well. Thanks to you and to Erin for a burst of inspiration. They are beautifully done but Fade is especially magical.
