Just an experiment, very fun..:bsmilie:
He will probably fit in more if B/W..lol

Description:
- Shriek only abt 9 inches tall.
- Prop newspaper is a small corner of Today newspaper.Held together by paper-clip, hold in his hands using blu-tack.

- Prop plastic bag just a loop cut from normal size bag.

- 1 hand hold Shriek's leg, the other hold camera.

- In order to allow both Shriek and background to maximize DOF(otherwise he'll stand out too much), have to shoot at f32, but then to have reasonable shutter speed, I pushed ISO to 2000 to get 1/80sec,shot at 17mm. Lens Tamron17-50mm.

>front of the yuhua market..
Yah guys, shot on way to mkt for dinnar..lol.
Thks for the compliments..

An interesting pt is that I wanted to shoot people looking at Shriek which will be cool, but you see how Shriek seems to be standing 2m away from me though it is only arms length?

However, their eyes are obviously looking in my direction, ignoring Shriek, which makes it look weird..:bsmilie: Of course, I could have got someone to pose for me..

Haha, I know that. It was really spur of a moment idea, and thats only how far I wanna go. Could of course print mini papers, was tinking of chopsticks sticking out of plastic bag. Or even make him very localized tee and uncle shorts...lol:bsmilie:

I dnt have much toys, may be fun to try other toys that u guys have.

i was thinking of other things then the shrek itself, its reading newspaper which makes him look like waiting for the traffic light, shldnt the traffic light be red man and "it" waiting to turn to green man?
And maybe shoot it when theres a group of pedestrains waiting too, making it seems like shrek has walked upon singapore, amongst humans!

just some comments for fun, and kudos for a job well done!

This is an example of using idea to produce a cheap and yet effective make belief pictures.
Of course, the full understanding of using the camera's features, ISO, aperture, shutter speed, lenses and technique is a prerequisite.
