This shoot took a strange turn… now, I shoot many toys, and the secret is to make them look like they have personality. Catch them in a moment, just as you would with a person. Today my son and I went to the annual sale at Rubber Chicken Comics and I grabbed some figures for 50% off. Each year I stock up on some toys for photos. I have got requests for more girls focused characters in my shots. Harley, Bat-girl, Wonder Woman, all have been mentioned. There are so many young girls out there loving the superhero world as much or more than boys. So I grabbed a fun looking Harley Quinn. This was going to be her session. I started with just her, her Joker doll and mallet, she does not want to stand at all, tiny feet and the balance of the doll made it a challenge but got it to work. I was all set with the solo Harley shot, same pose as the dailypic, figured I would toss the Joker figure from the same series in for ONE photo. The first one taken was the one above… here is where the strange turn comes in… no joke, they had chemistry. The way she looks at him, the grin on his face. It looks like they were having a conversation. I started to move them around, her hand is curved to hold the mallet, but it also could hold his hand. It was so weird, I started treating them like a wedding couple… I know, I lost my mind, but look at the shots. They tell a story of this couple. The close up with the torsos cropped, I have that shot in my wedding portfolio, just replace the Joker doll with a bouquet. Feel free to judge me, I don’t mind. I always have my toys.
