Upon venturing into Toy / Figure Photography, I found myself making a DIY light box. Here are the shots that got out of the oven:
I was looking for things to shoot inside the house (Yes. I don’t want to bother getting out to look for subjects. Lazy boy. Hehe), I saw my lamps. Posed them here and there. ‘Kinda lame but I must post it for whatever reason I have. 😀
‘Saw this man swimming with an alligator. Well, wallowing in the knee-deep water to be precise. But deep or not, there’s an alligator bigger than him which is only a foot away.
He was throwing coins at the beast’s back. I don’t know if this is related to the golden frog with coins you can see in China town.
But he sure is lucky because he left unscathed, Mr. Daredevil.
You can feel the power of point and shoot super zoom cameras in shots like these. In DSLRs and the likes, buying a lens that can match the reach of the super zoom P&S cams will leave a dent on you bank account, a very big dent (in my case).
Here is a shot with the theme: Still Life.
This is composed of a flower candle with vase and pebbles, placed on a sofa pillow. I used 2 lamps (left and right) which created the reflections and made another star-shape pattern. Cool!
Here are my attempts in capturing dew drops.
Honestly, made me thirsty looking at ’em.
A tip: look for leaves that have textures that tend to prevent the water droplets from rolling down. Try to do this very early. I think I got up around 5am. Insects also tend to be slower in the morning or maybe they’re just sleepy. LOL.
This macro shot of 2 bugs… umm… doing their business is quite memorable. I entered this one in a Canon photo contest and won a Canon A490 point and shoot camera.
