SPOTTED | ‘The Millennium Falcon’
Vesa Lehtimäki Nothing is what it seems “The Millennium Falcon is, by far, the most complicated model that I have ever made for a shoot. For the creation of this spaceship I used 43 LED lights and about two meters of optical fiber,” says photographer Vesa Lehtimäki. The original size of the miniature spacecraft was 431.8 mm by 304.8 mm. To make his photo a success, Lehtimäki used a special technique: “I combined the separately photographed model with background elements in Photoshop. The picture of the field was taken days before the picture of the scale model.” Vesa Lehtimäki is a Finnish photographer specializing in building and photographing spaceships. For The Millennium Falcon he got his inspiration from Star Wars.
