Toy photography

Over on my Instagram (metalfrog), I tend to share a lot of photos of the toys I collect. Once in a while I’ll still play with them like I did when I was younger, by giving them stories, and having them fight. I don’t have that in me as much, which is weird because my imagination still works because of what I do for a living, it’s just too laborious to do it with my toys.

My fun with them comes from posing them and snapping pictures now, and it’s pretty cool that there’s a big community for that on Instagram. I got Whirl a few weeks ago, and finally decided to apply the decals he came with. They add a lot of nice detail to him, and it was pretty relaxing focusing that hard on all these little stickers the other day.
