It’s a bit spooky… I don’t think we are in Kansas anymore Toto bear.? – N-Pop Girl

After work I stopped near my mailbox and decided to quickly shoot this figure.  There is a field near my home where the landscapers have been dumping grass clippings all summer.  I smells and there is quite a bit of garbage throughout the clippings…  I’m not too happy about that, but it makes for a great setting for toy photography.  I find with toy photography it does not really matter where I take a photo.  Coming in so close to such a small subject as a Lego minifigure for instance blurs that background to beyond recognition.  I find I focus more on color this way and try to minimize distraction.

This figure is probably not the best for this setting but I figrued that would work well as sort of a contrasting idea of sorts.  Sort of like Dorothy in the Land of OZ.  This N-Pop girl figure is so out of place in a dingy grassy field that has low key tones to contrast against the bright coloring of its outfit.  I thought it proper to name the bear Toto.

I like the variety in the new Lego Ninjago Movie CMF line and am brainstorming new ways to capture them.
