A matter of perspective

A thread came up on an online forum regarding perspective and photography of diecast cars.

It’s an interesting thing to think about, right? Why do so many people take ugly shots of their cars – just all scattered on a carpet, or in a dark room with grainy light, or on a creepy looking shelf in a basement?

Okay, I’ll stop being mean. A lot of people want to take a quick snapshot to catalogue their collection. But not me – I love my little cars and want to bring them to life in their own little scaled down world. Here’s a few shots from the last year that highlight my style of things.

Godzilla, with some other monsters lurking nearby…
Ferrari
Getting the perspective right gives this little Ferrari a big dose of attitude!

A brick wall can be a great place to host a gathering of old friends!

And to make some new discoveries…
Camping
A low level shot can give this tiny camping scene a lot of character.

Placing objects closer together can make the image a lot larger.

A small stream can become a mighty river…

And a small lake within a park can become a mighty sea!
Light
Playing with light to capture the perfect curves.

Hope you enjoyed! And sorry to any of my IG followers who have not had an original photos in this post. Sadly life gets in the way sometimes.
