Aperature: f/5.6
ISO: 250
Exposure: 1/1250 sec
Flash: No
Tripod: Yes

Note: Ben Heine shot this photo in Sousse, Tunisia, portraying a man catching multiple fish. Ben states that this is his take on capitalism, with the smallest fish being eaten and asking for help. Ben has many of these shots where he takes a photograph and incorporates a surreal drawing of his imagination. I love the attention to detail and the interaction his drawings have with the real world.  Visit more of his work on Facebook & his personal site.  Awesome work!

Tip: Ben shoot’s these photographs and then imports a drawing into the composition in post-processing software (such as Adobe Photoshop).  This gives the illusion that he is holding the paper up in the same exposure.  It’s very creative and has well thought out execution.
