I got Danbo a bicycle but she still likes her skateboard:
One thing that this image represents for me: location, location, location! My first attempt at taking this image were not satisfactory; I was shooting indoors and couldn’t find a good background for my set up. I’ve got Danbo’s posing down but the scene I was trying to capture indoors was not clicking for me, so I decided to venture out and see if I can do better.
It was just before 7 in the morning and the Sun has slightly risen fully. I made an attempt by setting up my scene at the doorstep of our front door. Click-click, checked the LCD, shaked my head no and then tried again. No cigar. I decided to move farther away and try the path to our front door. Still unsatisfactory.
I eventually found myself at our driveway in plain sight of whoever may drive by to witness a grown man crouching on the ground taking a picture of a tiny cardboard-like figure. Click-click, checked the LCD. Yes!
So, location, location, location. Works for real estate, works even better in photography, just as how I remembered reading and hearing from the experts!
More to come, until the next time, have a nice day!
