What would a Stuck in Plastic event be without a little toy photography? If we can’t have a toy photography meet-up, why not a toy photography workshop?

On Saturday, November, 7th from 1:00 to 3:00pm Kristina and I will lead an introductory toy photography workshop. This will be a little more formal than our past toy photography meet-ups, but we would still like to share with whoever is interested, our passion for toys and all things photographic.

Some topics we will cover in our short time will be;

  • A brief introduction and a little bit of our personal history
  • How to use photography as a creative outlet
  • How to bring your toys to life
  • Toys, nostalgia and collecting
  • Instagram and the toy photography community
  • Photo tips specific to toy photography
  • Editing basics

This is a hands on workshop so bring a few toys, a camera or a mobile phone and we will create a little magic within the four walls of the Bryan Ohno Gallery (or if the weather permits we can spill outside to one of the nearby city parks).

This should be a fun afternoon suitable for children and adults alike.

If you are interested in joining us, please contact the gallery, leave a note here or on our Facebook events page.

I hope to see you at the gallery on opening night November, 5th or for our Toy Photography Workshop on November, 7th!

Don’t worry if you don’t have any toys. I will bring along a few dinosaurs and LEGO mini figures to experiment with. 😀
