Ian vs. The Grasshopper

Ian vs. the grasshopper

How awesome is this photo? Very. And it’s not just because Ian is a cutie, it’s all about perspective. Again.

Alaine, who shot this great image, managed to get it from an angle with some seriously funky perspective going on. The grasshopper looks like a giant mutant bug, Ian’s head looks tiny in comparison, and his hand is HUGE and all-consuming.

Believe it or not, this is a famous trick in movies. How do you think they got all of those life-sized actors in The Lord Of The Rings to look like they were 3ft. tall? Ok, there was some CGI involved, but a lot of the magic was done with camera perspectives just like this. Nice job, Alaine!
