The right photo paired with the right caption can make your life appear far more glamorous than it really is. Vatsal Kataria, a talented creative director, conceptual miniature and still life photographer from India, is teaching the Internet how to make your life look way more exciting than it actually is. And you don’t even have to take credit for a photo you didn’t take.
“I visited all these places from my studio. I created all of this miniature landscapes here in my studio with help of very basic products. I used old cardboards, plaster, polystyrene sheets, newspapers and acrylic colours,” Kataria writes on Bored Panda.
Using simple materials and precise paintbrush strokes, Kataria makes it appear as if he has traveled all around the world without leaving his studio in India.

You can follow Kataria’s lead, but truth be told, unless you’re good at painting it’ll be difficult to replicate his work.
“Creating set is important but for me painting is the real challenge because it’s the paint job which brings life to my art,” the artist explains.
