Toy photography is super fun! you can make it as realistic or as far from realistic as you like, and just have fun with it! Toys, Jedi, Dolls, , Lego, Cars..

I’ve just found a small plastic man wearing a hiking backpack on my desk, I don’t know what adventures he’ll have this week, but I’ll be posting them in our Facebook group if you’re interested!

Toy photography isn’t about merely taking a toy, snapping a photo and “job done” it’s well, have a read over here! ‘Getting Started in Toy Photography on dPS’

Don’t have time for a read, here’s a summary “The challenge of Toy Photography is to make the toy “lifelike”; to remove that “plastic-feel” to it and to make it more human. Most Toy Photographers put their subjects into everyday, mundane scenes. You are limited only by your imagination”
