Polish photographer Tomek Makolski shoots campaigns for global car firms, so it is perhaps no surprise that he has taken some stunning shots of 42056 Porsche 911 GT3. He took a copy of the LEGO Technic out on the streets of Warsaw, Poland, and got some very impressive results.
Despite the set not being in scale with the other vehicles around it, in many of the shots the LEGO car looks to be full size. This was achieved by using clever camera angles, optical illusions and some post production digital trickery. His experience of having photographed a real life Porsche or two helped him to know the right angles to photograph the model car from.
“I wanted to play with viewer’s sense of scale and perception by inserting a life-size Lego Porsche GT3 model into the streets of Warsaw,” Makolski told The Calvert Journal. “[It was] creating an effect almost identical to a car spotter taking a photograph of a supercar.”
