July brought a real diamond to the creative Toy Photographers’ community. The challenge, suggested by Joshua Kittleson, was dedicated to the emotional reactions between two subjects/persons united with one story. Enjoying this interesting event, I prepared some images based on this rich concept in order to share my creative joy with you.
1. One mirror for Two
Mirrored glasses have enough space for the second character! I made a sci-fi shot that offers different versions of this ambiguous scene. How do you see the smiling man? Is he a spy or a good character catching a villain in his own office? Is the second person a victim? Everything is possible with imagination…
My work is based on the Amazing Spider Man movie. It shows the contrast of the competitors’ emotions: Peter Parker’s long-expected victory and Flash Thompson’s perplexity. This game was the perfect way to resolve the life conflict!
3. Different point of view
This movie still from Beauty and the Beast presents Gaston and his friend Lefou who are watching Belle with different thoughts in their minds.
Gaston is sure:
– “Nobody can resist ADMIRING me.”
Lefou thinks with irony:
– “Nobody DESERVES Gaston!”
4. The superhero’s love
“We’re not on different paths…you’re my path. I know there are many reasons why we shouldn’t be together, but I’m tired of every single one of them… We all have to make a choice, right? Well I choose you”. (c) Spider Man
Is there any ‘Two-sense’, special idea? Well, if you’ve seen The Amazing Spider Man 2, you can say that this scene is an unplanned “farewell.” Terrible!
Friendship is an exchange of joy, hobby and memorable gifts. It makes the friends look very much alike – inside and in appearance.
6. Psychological manipulation
This time it’s a poster about the metaphor of Control. I placed two characters in different dimensions in order to show their mutual relationship: the Dark Wizard Grindelwald is playing with young and desperate Credence’s feelings, using the boy’s great magical power for the victory.
That’s what I like in this creative hobby – a challenge that gives us so many impressions and ideas! Thanks a lot to all the members of our team for the great suggestions, and let’s continue this fun in August! Thanks for your attention!
