This blog is about my new project which is about Micro Machines. I have started to shoot them in a small studio style set up. I have tried a few different things to get the right look for the studio and I think I have the right look for this project as doing it this way I can get the same look no matter what I am shooting. I have put them as black and white as I do not what to spoil the final shoots until I am ready for them to be seen.
A few of the ones below are from just are using constant lights but at different speeds of shutter closing. This is from fast to slow. I have chosen the way I am working as I can get the most out of the toys. As the focused are is very small so I have been playing around to get it so I can have the best of both worlds.
I have also done some with flash like the ones below. I did start out with the flashes outside and behind the camera but thought about it a bit more and then put them inside the camera boxes which looks like above but I can shoot quicker then if I am waiting for a long time like above.
Also when I moved them on the inside I go an even light across the background. which gives it a bit more of a kick.
This is where I have been doing so far and love how things look so far. There is more to these amazing toys than just cars.
I do hope you like these as I have had fun making what I have done so far.
