A Toy Hobbyist Christmas Photo Shoot of course!
I got invited by Leon from "Open the Toy" (see links at end of article) to cover this casual outing on 20th December 2009.
This is also widely known as "Toy Art" in some parts of the world. The idea is to blend the toy (subject) into our real-world environment through clever manipulation of picture angles and selection of background. In short, bring the toy to life.
We gathered at Takashimaya before taking a walk down towards ION Orchard where the real action starts. Let the pictures do the talking for now.
*This guy here was to be Leon’s "subject".
*One quick shot before the serious work start.
*Shooting Toys can be tricky, everyone is preparing.
*And, here we go….
*I have to try this myself, so…………………….
And I try to get a little more closer….
*Everyone is heated up by now….
*I tried a few more shots with another figurine…………….. see below,
Looks like fun ah?
Time for Dinner……………
After Dinner at Forum, the brady bunch heat things up again. This time the setting will be the fountain outside Forum.
*Here we go again….
I got really tempted and I started shooting the figurines too. See below, haha…
*Leon’s subject made a cameo appearance again…
Heh heh, here’s a "Drowned" Figurine….
A rock concert too?
So you get the idea now? This is yet another photography trend that is coming up strong with followings in Singapore. Shooting Toys.
And none other than the collectors themselves!
So if you are interested to join in the fun and be a Toy Photographer yourself, please contact the group at the links listed below.
All you need is a poseable toy figurine, a good camera with macro functions and determination to get good pictures and you are good to go.
*I got covered too. 🙂 by Leon.
