They all have different characteristics but are equally creative and can use their imagination to transform toys into living objects.

There are several tips if you want to try this type of photography:

1. Tell stories

Each figure or toy has its own story. You can create a story for your photo like Captain America is about to cross the street.

2. Make toys more human

It will be easier if you use human figures to make this. But you can also use other figures such as cars and angle the photo in such a way as if you were photographing a human. Another way, you can use landscape such as grass in front of the house and direct sunlight so that your photos look more alive.

3. Dare to experiment

There are no rules in toy photography, you can decide what you want to make, whatever it is, like Ultraman playing with a dog, or Superman hitting a bird while flying. You can use your imagination as widely as possible. You can use ingredients around you to help maximize the effect you want to get, for example using flour to create a snow scene.
