About Me: Paul Tresadern, Red_Dog_5 on Instagram. Emigrated from Nottingham England now living in Arizona. I have been a toy photographer since 2015.
They have extreme battle wear and tear ideal to tell this story visually. I have quiet a few of them and have had many positive comments from the toy community about how they like my weathering technique. My style is to make it as real as I can. I am always looking at the scale of the surroundings in which I place my subject. In this case the desert provides excellent micro worlds The desert flora is perfect. I use a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 with a Leica Lens. I purposely purchased this tiny camera for this kind of photography. I mainly shoot in 24 mm wide angle and macro, f/stop 5.6 1/1300 ISO 200 on the monochrome shots.
I scoped out the Location prior to the shoot but left it to the day of the shoot to pick my areas I wanted to tell the story. This was based on light conditions and interest of surroundings. I decided to shoot monochrome and a low saturation style to add a somewhat bleak tone. If there was one disappointment to the shoot, it was the blue sky. I was hoping for an overcast grey day to add to the gloom, but you take what you can here in AZ.
