Photographer Mathieu Stern came up with an interesting way to combine macro photography and “self” portraiture: he had a miniature version of himself made through 3D scanning and printing.
Stern visited the Paris-based Digitage, which does 3D scanning of bodies and faces, and posed with his camera in front of a large room-sized array of DSLRs that photographed him from every 360 degrees.
A minute later, a 3D rendering of himself showed up on a computer screen. And weeks later, a tiny realistic figurine of Stern arrived in the mail.
Stern then took the figurine out into the world and used it to pose inside his own small scale photos.
