Recently I was invited by the founder member of Shutter Journey for their ToyArt photoshoot. Since it has been sometime since I bring my toys out for photoshoot, I took the opportunity to join the ToyArt shoot at the bay of Singapore River. For the ToyArt, I brought along my Figma 100 Miku Append and Trexi Spongebob squarepants
Shutter Journey is an independent group created for Photographers from all levels and a "Meeting Place" for all genres of Photography. They have regular meet up with difference photography theme for hobbies or leisure photographers to meet up.
Now that being said, I have to state that I am not a professional photographer but I enjoyed photograph in my own way. Going with a group of photographers with Toys as subject in outdoor are always a good experience for me. Firstly it is fun to do things in a group as the passion of photography will rub off to each other when you see some of the creativity at work.
Below are some photos I took that day. Note: Some of the photos are click-able to view in bigger resolution.
One of the good thing would be others will bring along their own good looking toy for photography as well.
You can always do experiments on all sort of angles and focus.
Sometimes you can pose the toys together for interaction photography to make a story.
(You may put your own caption on this). LOL
Some of it you can play with the background to add live in the photography such as these pirates engagement with the sea body at the background.
Ultimately with good background, your toys will always look much better. :)
Anyway the experience with these group of 15 photography lover that day was great as some of them are more passionate in toy photography than me.The group members were friendly and the event was well organized. If I have the time again, I will join them again for this fun group.
If you are into hobby photography in Singapore, you can join Shutter Journey gathering and events which they have regularly. See which one fit your schedule. There are no membership fees involve to join their group. :)
