3 New Images - potential to be in Playset series, maybe...

These three images are "colorform" playsets, which are technically 2-D playsets. These all came with reusable stickers which serve as the figures and objects in the scenes. 

I'm not sure that these can go in the series I've started. Maybe they're a new tangent, maybe they are a dead end. In any event, I photographed them, so I figured I may as well share them here. I'll be thinking about these.

Couple other notes about the series as a whole:

1. I think I'll print these at 30 x 45 inches. I think this would be a good size since I want them to be large, but I think that they shouldn't be huge. For reference, my Underneath photos are 18 inches tall and my Interiors photos are 40 inches tall, so these would fall in between.

2. I think I'm going to submit three of these for a group show. I think that a good pairing, indicative of the group, would include the Barn, Moonbase, and Firehouse. It's a tough call though.

That's all for now. Thanks for looking at these!

More playset photos - Moonbase

Today I'm posting the a new photo that's part of the playsets series I started earlier. I've picked up a number of used playsets over the past week, almost all are from Ebay. This marks a transition away from relying on my own old playsets for the series, as well as a more selective process of choosing my source material (in the past I've relied more on my local Goodwill and dollar store - this is the first time I've spent hours sifting through hundreds of items online). There's lots to be said about this particular Moonbase playset - both in terms of what it is and how I photographed it, but for now I just want to put it out there.
