I mentioned the other day that I decided to do a quick and simple project based on my guitars. There are thirteen in total, more than Tumblr allows in one post, so I’ll split them into electrics and acoustics.
I thought about how to shoot them and decided that quick and simple was the way. Nothing flashy, no backdrops or studio lighting - just as they are using natural light. They’ve all been played and enjoyed, not locked away like precious artifacts, so they need to be seen with all the scars and imperfections that make them special to me.
As I mentioned in the previous post, I’ve rediscovered a basket of toy cars from my youth and I’m considering setting up a project to shoot them, but I haven’t yet worked out the approach I’d like to take. I have a few ideas though.
The lovely Jules Falk Hunter (http://justjulespictures.tumblr.com/) sent me a message telling me of her recent toy project (which looks brilliant) and gave me a nudge to get on with it and post here in parallel with her :) I fully intend to do that, but need to get my direction sorted first. Until then, have a shot of one of my favourite toy trucks :)
I recently discovered a cache of my toy cars from when I was a kid, and I’m tempted to do some sort of macro project with them. Until then here’s one of my favourites - a Matchbox ‘Field Car’ which isn’t a particular make as far as I know but I reckon there’s a lot of International Harvester Scout in there.
