FPS-like adventure photography

Award for Photoshop wizardry.

A man has won a Digital Photography/Imaging gong in Adobe's 2005 Design Achievement Awards for his rather impressive series of photographs portraying a game-style first-person perspective.

Micah Ganske's pictures show the artist going through a regular day - having breakfast, playing games, working at a computer desk, shaving and so on - but through his eyes, with his hands still in the foreground, as if we're playing a first-person perspective videogame.

It's something we're used to in the gaming world, films and obviously real life, but it's still somewhat striking to see projected in photography. He states his objective was to recreate a simulation of day-to-day life by placing the viewer behind his eyes. "It is about how the most monotonous activity becomes pure candy when it’s placed at a sufficient level of distance to the spectator," Ganske states on the website.

You can see his work and notes on how he achieved some of the pictures over at Adobe's site.
