In December folks at www.stuckinplastic.com started to propose some challenges to make us go outside of our comfort zone. I haven’t participated to the first challenge because I lacked time and actually also because I didn’t know how to proceed. The second challenge was about making an exact copy of someone’s else photo. It came at the right time to force me to do something I have wanted to do for a few months: try to remake photos which left a deep trace in my mind from the first people I started to follow on Flickr, and which inspired me to the point of making me want to take myself photos of toys.
This image (https://www.flickr.com/photos/flipimages/14563256860) from Lynn AKA DigiNik13 (on Flickr) AKA @handstand30 (on Instagram) is one among many awesome image. It was very hard to choose which one of Lynn’s photos to replicate as she have made a ton of amazing picture. The reason I wanted to do one of her photos is that it wouldn’t be lying to say that she is among the 3 toy photographers that inspire me the most. (While I crave also giving a try at replicating one photo of the two others I just don’t think I have the technical skills to do it.)
