I get special requests from time to time, a friend from work saw the monkeys I used to shoot awhile back and when I would not let her steal them, she bought her own. Turns out they are even smaller than the ones I had. These 10 are tiny, maybe 1/2 and inch tall. Not too easy to photograph either, not a lot of detail and they get lost in a wide shot. I tried staggering them, I added a shelf to layer them, nothing was working, then I decided to go with a lineup look. Dropped the flash below the lens to create the shadow and tried to honor a Usual Suspects movie poster I remember seeing. Just missing the numbers on the sides and lines running along the back.
Do you have any toys, antiques, keepsakes or collectibles you would like photographed? It is a service I offer. You would be surprised how many people contact me asking to preserve one thing or another with a photo. I would love to hear from you, maybe your stuff could be a dailypic!
