My old toys !

Toy Nostalgia 2

Well after thinking About about other ideas  for nostalgia related images , the film ” Toy Story ” sprung to mind and i thought of how i get a sense of nostalgia when i think of my old toys and games i used to play with when i was younger . I thought i would do an image based around this .

I think when we was children we all liked to think our toys came to life when we slept , as in the film we all loved when we were adults . So  I put my perspective  as if the viewer was another toy coming to life as the lights go dim and looking up at your partner(toy friend ) in toy crime as he leaves the safety of the toybox . To give it a more nostalgic sense i made it look as if done on a wetplate . I balanced the car on the lid to give a sense of cautious precariousness as he is climbing out , when he knows he shouldnt . If the car falls then surely he would wake up his owner .

Nostalgia .

Over the weekend i decided to work with  one of the six words from our main technical studio session assignment .

I chose”  Nostalgia ” A sentimental longing or wistful affection for a period in the past . I used a small old fashioned victorian dollhouse for the set and played around with the camera angle and lighting to create the ghostly figure in the window longing for times gone by . Below is the image i created :

The Nostalgic ghost_

The studium is the lighting and nostalgic victorian setting of the dollhouse and the punctum would be the ghost looking through the window reminiscing of times gone by . I hope people feel the same feeling as what i had in mind when creating this , it is my first attempt at using the word nostalgia in an image . I will keep thinking and maybe it will improve or progress further . I thought about making the whole room sharp but then i didnt feel i achieved the same feeling and the ghostly figure in the window wasnt as recognisable as a ghost to me . I would appreciate any critique on my image tyvm 🙂
