One of the things I love about artists, photographers, and other creative folks is the fact that most of them still embrace their inner child. A lot more than the 9 to 5 office slaves…eh…I mean, workers.
We photographers and artists do what we do because we love it, because we have fun and it makes us happy.
How many times have you bought a new camera, an accessory, or some new art supply and had that “kid on Christmas morning” feeling while you’re opening the packaging? Every time? Me too!
Some artists take it a step beyond the giddy “I got something shiny and new” feeling and cross into the realm of all out playtime. One photographer I stumbled upon on Flickr, Stéfan, illustrates my point perfectly.
Stéfan seems very fond of photographing toys and it’s a good thing he does cause he’s awesome at it. His series entitled “Stormtroopers 365”, in which he photographed two Stormtrooper toys in various adventures every day for a year, is hilarious! Keep up the good work, Stéfan!
Check out “Stormtroopers 365”! Seems like the dark side might just be more fun!
I’ve been inspired.
Until next time…
