    Toy Photography - Let's see them.

    Toy Photography - Let's see them.
    There wasn't a category for it, but I thought toy photography might be a fun one, I've enjoyed it.

    Please feel free to throw in your own creative toy shots. Feel free to share the creativity behind the shot.

    These Storm Troopers were photographed in the water running along the curb of my road from someone's sprinklers. The rocks are petrified wood. Fog is from my smoke machine. White balance set to 3800K. Snow is Photoshop.

    This is amazing, George! I've read a few articles on toy photography, and the extent taken by photographers can yield incredibly realistic, eye-opening images. Offhand I don't recall toy photography being popular here yet, but hopefully this will get members' interest to try something new.

    Lol. By contrast, I was fascinated to see how this shot was produced. Vive la différence, eh?

    Toy Photography - Let's see them.
    Ok, I posted this just a couple of weeks ago in the "Car" competition. But I'm flogging it here because it's my first, and still only, toy shot. And I like it

    I stuck the cars on the edge of a slow RPM product turntable, with the camera directly across from it on the turntable also so they spun together. I jerry-rigged my video cam's clip-on closeup lens attachment to the front of my Nikon to give that spyglass circular look - high tech magic, woo hoo! And of course, I remotely released the shutter as it approached the "Go Directly to Jail" square for the ultimate in story telling wit

    Yeah, it's no Industrial Light and Magic effort. But dammit, I only just started doing this stuff so I'm like a proud new pappa with his baby. So there! Lol....

    Sorry I spoiled it for you. I love this forum and all the teaching/learning that goes on so I thought I would share.

    I started doing it for fun, but it's really been educational on building a set. However, it's much easier to build that set on a small scale to figure things out.
