Fantastic Movie Quality Star Wars Stills Using LEGOs and “Snow”

Created by Finnish photographer Vesa Lehtimäki, this collection of photographs combines the worlds of Star Wars with LEGO characters as well as a ton of creative staging. In order to create many of the scenes on Hoth from The Empire Strikes Back, Lehtimäki uses a large quantity of baking powder to recreate snow and makes interesting lighting choices to capture images that somewhat replicate scenes from the films.

Regarding camera hardware, Lehtimäki uses a Canon EOS 5D Mark II to take the shots as well as Adobe Photoshop CS4 to perfect the image. Scenes depicted within his work mostly deal with the day-to-day life of people on Hoth, but he’s also included some interesting Indiana Jones mash-ups related to Return of the Jedi.
