so he takes a picture of something, then makes a model of it, which he them photographs then destroys the model?
That does make them definately more interesting in a contextual way but still rather dull (for me) on the visual side of things!
I am currently playing around with Photoshop's inhouse effects and then came across a thing called photmerge. Looking more into it I found a link on things called HDR images. Im sure you've heard of them, but they are basically 3 photos of the same scene taken at different exposures. the pictures are then merged together given the photos a weird ethereal kind of look. I think they look amazing whereas a lot of people find themselves annoyed by the fact that effects have been used. I don't see the harm in it as i feel it produces another type of art as opposed to destroying another. If you want a go at it then firstly see if you camera has an Auto Bracketing feature (3 exposures at once), and then try uploading them on to Photomatix program and it does the rest. If you don't have Auto bracketing i'm guessing it would be harder to do but definately not impossible by any means (you may have to use just static scenes though). i would love to find out how to do it with film though, that would be amazing.
A very similar technique was used on the film Zodiac out recently, and the film looks beautiful because of it. It makes me wander why the technique isn't used on more comic book films as they would certainly suit the style.
