September 2018 Favorite Toy Photos
Updated: Jun 11, 2021
Well that's a wrap on September. I had a pretty nice burst of creative energy this month and ended up created 23 new images. And these aren't images that I just feel lukewarm about...these are images I challenged myself on creatively as well as technically and had a really fun time creating. That's a good month if, like me, you've been doing this for a few years. When you first start photographing toys you have a million ideas, or maybe you don't but just shoot toys for the sake of shooting toys. Shooting one or more images a day isn't unheard of when you first start, and one can learn a lot during this period. What you lack in quality you make up for in quantity. Part of my productivity this month can probably be tied to my getting a couple new toys, which always helps stoke the creativity. I clearly had a lot of fun with the Little Green Men from Toy Story, as I did with my new Adventure Kermit (who is suspiciously similar to Indiana Jones!). So if you're feeling uninspired, change it up. New toys, new locations, new challenges, new thought processes, new techniques, new gear...anything that gets you out of your usual routine. Let's see if I can keep the momentum going in October!
Here's some favorites from September. Thanks for reading!
All images were photographed using the Canon 5D Mark III paired with the amazing Canon 135mm f2L.
