Mini Challenge #256 - Models
No ... not the human(oid?) sort that wanders down catwalks looking totally bored / disinterested - but the variety that's some sort of real world replica / tangible object.
The subject can be of something real - or not ... ie if you're a Star Wars fan and you've got models of R2D2 / Millennium Falcon etc hanging around ... then pix of these will be fine. To widen the scope, 'toys' will also be allowed (reluctantly )
If someone wants to try some green screen stuff and montage with a suitable 'real world' background ... that's also ok.
Taking half decent pix of models - imo, anyway - is all about appropriate pov and ... if there's other stuff in frame - how well that fits in with the main subject.
Light / mood is, well ... you can guess the rest.
3 of the 4 ex below are of model boats because a) the local club use one of the lakes where I go for waterfowl and my gear / setup is also appropriate for such models - especially the larger ones b) I made models in my teens so I have a particular interest.
I appreciate that not all / any people want to grovel around at water / low level (usual comment I get is 'I might be able to get down there, but I'd never get up again ... ) ... which is why I added the pic of a bike (taken this morn)
The setup for this (old lead sheet bg, btw) was on a table top - so no grovelling required ... 'appropriate' pov means exactly that ... not specifically low.
I added the strange plastic canister in frame as a prop / sizing artifact for the bike - younger members might not recognise it - the bike itself is an early prototype of such things I'm making from wire / cable acquired from my skip (dumpster?) diving missions - I also use copper wire.
Challenge starts now and finishes @ 2000hrs GMT Tues 21st Nov (giving a couple of weekends to play if needed - but stops before you lot - on the LHS of the pond anyway - have to run around like headless ... whatevers - getting stuff ready for the 23rd.
All other challenge details as elsewhere ... ie winner picks the next.
