I was bored and wanted to play with my new Storm Gray backdrop and had no subject. So I took my sons Mr. Potato Head and shot this.

Shot with: Canon 20D, one strobe with softbox and a fill card (f13 and 1/200 sec)

Subject seems a little starchy.

You should frame it for your kid. (assuming that your kid is still a kid)

Wicked fun, but I was immediately drawn to the bottom middle square and its non rounded corners...

Absolutely love it though - great idea.

I wasn't going to post a fix to the bottom image because I thought this tread was going to die. But since a couple more people commented. Here is the fix (forgot my clipping mask on the bottom middle image...opps).

I will have to think about that. My son is going on 2 and I did make him a small print. he then kept taking Mr. Potato head and putting him back in the studio on the gray backdrop that is still set up. lol

awesome series! btw, how close to mr potato head were you? f13 seems a bit a high unless you were fairly close then I can see why you needed the fstop...or you're like me and leave the strobe at the same power and adjusted your camera to compensate :-P
