It’s a bit spooky… I don’t think we are in Kansas anymore Toto bear.? – N-Pop Girl

After work I stopped near my mailbox and decided to quickly shoot this figure. There is a field near my home where the landscapers have been dumping grass clippings all summer. I smells and there is quite a bit of garbage throughout the clippings… I’m not too happy about that, but it makes for a great setting for toy photography. I find with toy photography it does not really matter where I take a photo. Coming in so close to such a small subject as a Lego minifigure for instance blurs that background to beyond recognition. I find I focus more on color this way and try to minimize distraction.
This figure is probably not the best for this setting but I figrued that would work well as sort of a contrasting idea of sorts. Sort of like Dorothy in the Land of OZ. This N-Pop girl figure is so out of place in a dingy grassy field that has low key tones to contrast against the bright coloring of its outfit. I thought it proper to name the bear Toto.
I like the variety in the new Lego Ninjago Movie CMF line and am brainstorming new ways to capture them.
