Playmobil in the studio

launchpad_02

I got some sweet playmobil sets for Christmas, including this shuttle and launchpad. A friend of ours has a fog machine so I thought I’d take over a handful of sets and try out how the fog works in a studio setting. Click below for more pics and get excited for Toy Fair!


Carabinieri special police

When my wife went on holiday in Rome, I had my eyes peeled for this Italian exclusive Carabinieri (or Special Police) officer. It only took 3 toy stores to find it! The real trick was clicking the shutter right when his siren was going off.

nightwatchman

I snagged this night watchman from the playmobil direct service shop. I wanted foggy ambiance, but not have him obscured. I also like the film-like qualities to this image.

Another pic of my favorite rocker Slash. The laser beams work very well in the fog. I didn’t notice that his hand had let go of his guitar until after we packed it all up, but this was my favorite shot with the lasers interacting with the fog.

porsche

I didn’t need fog for this one. Here is the brand new Porche for 2016. It’s a beaut. I’m headed to the Washington Auto Show next week, so stay tuned for more cool car pics if that’s your thing. I tried all kinds of ways to light this one up, but I found one strong light from above did the trick. Here’s the set up.

Just a battery operated LED panel. I put the camera on a tripod so I could focus on where I was holding the light. The reflective base is just black granite tile from Home Depto.

Here is a gallery of all the studio playmobil photos. Toy Fair and Auto Show pics coming soon!
