Today Shawn and I went to the monthly main MeetUp for Shoot Miami, at John Martin’s. This month’s theme was “toy story” – not necessarily the movie, but more so photos that incorporate a toy as the main subject. Last month when they announced that was to be the theme, I immediately knew what I wanted to take a photo of: a miniature molded plastic toy dog that strongly resembles a Vizsla (the breed of my past 2 and current 2 dogs). I have had this little toy dog since I was about 4 years old. It was one of the few toys that went with me to places on a regular basis when I was a kid.
I shot the mini dog (nicknamed “Ginn”) in my front yard with a Canon 7D with a 100mm macro lens, and the other image with a 17-40mm L lens.
I’m happy to say that the first image was one of the 2 winners of tonight’s Shoot Miami’s contest. Yay! and Thanks! to those Shoot Miami members who voted for Ginn. 🙂
