The mobitoygraphy project is about capturing great toy photography, with mobile phone.

It’s always good to see toys come to life. Toy photography does that. But I think great toy photography is not always about creamy bokeh, sharp images, or how clean the low light photo is.

The idea of mobitoygraphy project is to stop worrying about the gear, make do with what you have, that is, your mobile phone. Instead, think about composition, colors, light and shadow. Embrace the miss focus, the low resolution, the grains.

If you ever heard of Chase Jarvis’ photo book “The best camera is the one that’s with you” or the “Pro Photographer, Cheap Camera” video series by Digital Rev, you know what I mean.¬†The mobitoygraphy project is similar, but specifically about toy photography.

This is a one-off custom, so it’s officially an endangered custom figure, if you choose to preserve it, you can contact Alympu or DavidtheKiller through their Instagram account.
