With February well underway, it’s time to announce the winners of our awesome jANTMANuary contest!
The challenge? Take a photo of AntMan. Not just any photo though! As the original brief stated:
There’s a catch— your figure needs to be involved in day-to-day events – interacting in real world happenings, to scale with the real world. That’s the awesome thing about AntMan he is tiny and therefore works at whatever scale your figure is for, we have dubbed this real world toy photography! Call it an exercise in macro photography. Call it an exercise in FUN!! – Jason Nvrmore (Community moderator)
Everyone seemed to have a LOT of fun with this challenge, and we had over 40 entries on G+, making it a tough one to pick the winners!
Sometimes the Bat-mail takes its Bat-time! Our box of Batman Movie Collectable Minifigures Series 2 just Bat-arrived. While we get our Bat-review finished, you can start entering our giveaway now. Yes, Bat-now!
You’ve probably hear of the popular idiom: The Devil is in The Details. We decided to put it to the test for our November photography challenge. As Tony explained in the original challenge: Often details are overlooked by a viewer’s conscious observation, but they still add to (or detract from) an image. Like all good challenges, we wanted to see how our community would interpret this rather broad definition. Continue reading The Devil is in The Details
What happens when three photographers make pictures with the same motive -a unicorn?
Last Saturday, me, Shelly and Christoffer had a photo-meet-up in Stockholm. It ended with us challenging ourself. We all took an invidual image of the same motive. The Unicorn. The question we asked ourself was: if you will be able to see the photographer behind the camera? Or if you will see the same picture? We worked in the same spot, with the same light and with the same motive… We challenged ourselves. Continue reading One motive three photographers – the unicorn
With Shelly’s away catching up with old friends, meeting new ones, taking photos of LEGO, taking about LEGO, and attending the LEGO House opening, I’ve decided to take a week off from posting. Shhh! Don’t tell her!
With over 300 posts on Instagram and Google+, our task to pick just one Ninjago Movie Minifigures Winner wasn’t easy. Shelly and I managed to narrow it down to three favourites each. After all, three’s the magic number, as Shelly pointed out!
Our most recent photo challenge in the Toy Photographers G+ Community is Lightness. We want to see how you can express a word with many meanings through your toy photography. Because the month is nearly half over; its time to get serious about the competition. For this reason I want to talk about the idea of Lightness and what it means to me. I believe a single word can inspire creativity.
Here are a few meanings for the word Lightness and my own interpretations:
the state or quality of being light in weight
Flying shots are a staple of many toy photographers. The ability to create the illusion of flight, motion, swinging is important if your toys fly through the air, either on wings or by the use of webs. Continue reading Lightness: A Photo Challenge
One of the reasons I don’t build a library of images is that I very rarely think that my images from yesterday are able to stand up to the test of time. I often think that I’m the best image-maker today. The image I do today has every chance to become just as I imagined it. A new day, with new opportunities …
