Another cute toy turned evil…


I have finally got around to taking another photo for an image-set I’m putting together, Cuddly Toys After Dark. This time it features a Polar Bear puppet that I’ve had for years.

I’m now on the lookout for new bedrooms, new people and new cuddly toys to add to this, quite frankly, disturbing set so if you’re interested in having your photograph taking in your bedroom with your favourite cuddly toy – let me know.

A Niece and a Nephew II

This is another video I made of my niece and nephew. I’m starting to accidentally document the growth of them, but hey, when they’re older they are going to love this stuff!

I don’t usually smoke, but when I do…

…it involves a camera and a kitchen towel.

Just so you get the gist of how I got to this image, I’ll show you the unedited, the inverted and the colour version, as well as the set up used to achieve this.

Cuddly Toys After Dark: Shark

I had this idea about a week ago to make a photoset of what cuddly toys get up to after dark. The two routes I was thinking of taking were 1. Macabre and 2. Cute. I’ll probably end up mixing the two.

So anyway, I hear about a Behind The Scenes competition and I decided to go for it. The gist is that you make a video of a photo or video shoot.

Here’s my video from the shoot:

Playing With SlowMo

I got a new camera (Canon 550D), which is pretty tight. More┬ánoticeably, it records at 60FPS – enough to make some cool slow motion effects. Not amazing 1000FPS quality, but with the use of Twixtor (CS5 plugin) it blends the frames so it looks pretty good.

Chris and I decided to have a little play with Alex and the slow motion techniques.
