Toy Truck

Posted on 1 May ’12 by Earl Moore

Earl Moore Photography
Faithful Toy Truck

This photo is definitely a created scene, not a found one.

It started with a toy metal truck I picked out to decorate remodeled shelves — you can see it on the left side of the shelves in the “after” photo here. I staged and photographed it on the corner of my desk and then brought it into Photoshop to create grass and add a background from another photo.

I like this truck, perhaps because I use to love playing with toy trucks as a child. It’s not realistic but it’s got a lot of detail and character. It was also a fun project to do.

    That is fantastic, Earl. Perhaps you can print it and hang up. Great work!

    Your Photoshop (and photography) skills are excellent, Earl. Like Paul said – this is wall worthy.

      Monte, thanks. I don’t know about “life Like,” but I liked the looks of it.

    Wow! is a good word for it. When I first saw it I though you’d gone Lensbaby on a real truck you discovered tucked away, but knowing it’s a set up toy truck makes it all that more impressive. Excellent work, Earl!

    Nice job Earl. Think this will work with some of my Star Wars figures?

    Very sensitively captured, Earl. Well lit and excellent PS job too. We should all start make more art is the immediate thought that come out of me. Just for the joy of it.
