Mitchel Wu Toy Photography Behind the Scenes: Flintmobile Pursuit
Updated: Jun 11
Here's quick BTS on my Flintmobile being pursued by a huge, monstrous hand. I photographed it in my backyard, where I actually create a lot of my images, and it's fast become one of my most popular images ever. I think it's because of a few factors - first, the Flintmobile is simply a really cool toy (from Hot Wheels). Second, there's a really fun story behind it. And third, the practical effects of the water splashing just adds a big wow factor to the image. This video and the following still photos will give you a good glimpse into how I created this image.
I created this image using the Canon 5D Mark III paired with the Canon 135mm f/2L - ISO 800, f/2 at 1/2000 sec. You need to shoot at a higher speed like this if you want to capture and freeze the fine details of the splash. The camera was mounted on my Manfrotto 055 Carbon Fiber tripod.
