Stephanie and her husband Jonathan are huge fans of Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes. When the two got engaged and married in 2011 and 2012, respectively, they decided to use the comic as their theme for both their engagement photo shoot and their wedding. To capture the images, they recruited San Francisco-based photographer Junshien of Junshien International.
If you’re a fan of photography and of Bill Watterson’s popular comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, you’ll probably love what Oregon-based freelance photographer Michael S. Den Beste has been working on recently. He’s using his Photoshoppin’ skills to blend Calvin and Hobbes characters into photographs of real world locations that match the settings seen in the comics. The results are magical, beautiful, and oh-so-very-fun.
Here’s a fun photo project you can try: recreate each of Calvin’s funny face photographs from Calvin and Hobbes. A version of this project done by a cute Asian boy was a popular viral photo a couple years ago. You can download the original Calvin montage here.
