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.
To join the project, all you need to do is push the boundary and follow few simple rules.
- Strictly use mobile phone camera only
- State your mobile phone model with your photo
- Upload to Instagram and tag it with #mobitoygraphy
Spread the word, challenge your friends, challenge yourself, and join the mobitoygraphy project.
Can’t wait to see what you can come up with.
