Omahi is a Mexican photographer with over 100k followers on Instagram. The photographer not only constantly shares breathtaking photos but also gives people a glimpse at how they are taken by sharing the behind-the-scenes pictures of many of his photos. A moody photo of a girl in the desert or in the middle of a blizzard? That’s just some clever lighting and a computer monitor. Combine that with some skillful Photoshop work and you’ve got yourself a masterpiece.
The ph0tographer says he trusted over 100k pesos worth of equipment to a cheap plastic case in order to take this picture – but we think it was definitely worth it.
No need to travel all the way to Asia for a picture like this – sometimes a TV screen and a little creativity can take you a long way.

A little help from some friends and good Photoshop skills is the perfect recipe for a great photo.

Even if you get a few weird looks from people passing by, the end result is totally worth it.
Spotting the opportunity for the perfect shot no matter where you are is definitely a sign of a great photographer.
