We’ve been playing with Objects and Backdrops today – and the toy cars!
Continuing on from last week we set up our shots on the stations before taking the shots with our camera
Using the clips from old magazines and the toy cars produced some really good shots and saved us the cost of location (Hee Hee!)
I revisited this picture from the last session. Using the pencils as “Pointers”. I hadn’t spotted this till after taking the pic, but I created a “Sunrise” effect by marking them out.
As well as the lego men, Graham, one of the group brought in some railway model men
this allowed the group to be a bit more adventurous with our photos….
and here’s a couple when I got home 🙂 Created along the same principles – studio a bit more rustic than that of BASIC Clicks…but objects and subject matter stayed the same (Astronomy book provided a little colour!)
If you’ve got any favourites – feel free to let me know!
when taking an interest in a subject, it pays to get the most of the subject matter.
Do your research, but don’t restrict yourself to a library 📚 books are great, however if you can see an item relating to your interest….it makes your interest solid.. tangible.
Its probably why I enjoy walking round the county museums and art galleries
taking in the counties art collections and exhibits and learning about the stories behind the picture.
I’ve covered the imperial war museum north a lot on this site. But there are many other galleries that bring art and history to life.
Lark hill place in the city art gallery is one such example. Whilst others admire the paintings of Lowry and other local artists, You walk down an actual Victorian street.
You can see items in the windows, smell the smells of Victorian life and hear the sounds of a Victorian day…hear the hooves of the horses hitting the cobbles, and the clang of the blacksmith getting ready to replace those horses shoes …all before going back to modern life and enjoying your packed lunch.
