Cornering the Clown
Happy Friday everyone. I hope you will be looking forward to the weekend as much as I. I spent a bit of my Thursday this week continuing to test my new little point and shoot Panasonic camera. There has been this idea for a little toy scene bouncing around in my head for a few months. So, I thought why not do a trial run with the new camera. I like these as environmental type scenes. The first one is named "Cornering the Clown". I find clowns to be a bit creepy by nature and so this was one of those out my nightmare kind of scenes. A giant clown, giant to the army guys anyway, being cornered.
I shot this on my bathroom sink with natural light coming in from the window.
Here is a scene with a little toy replacing the clown that is a different kind of creepy. This Siamese twin kind of rabbit character is more odd than creepy. But, I wanted to capture the old 1950's B movie feel with this one. So the colors are more muted here. I suppose a pure black and white would have worked better for this thought but, I wanted to keep the lavender color of the twins.
Hope you have a great Friday and a great weekend to come. I hope to get some much needed art and house work done. Thank you for stopping by.
