Throughout December we’ll be showcasing work from across the community in a retrospective project dubbed “My Top 3 2018”. Katie (@pictographer02) is up next in our series sharing his personal favourites from 2018 along with a few reason behind why he chose them. Its over to Katie to introduce their selection :
My name is Katie and I have a toy photography account called @pictographer02. The three pictures I chose for my top 3 of 2018 were picked because of a variety of reasons.
I love taking peaceful and colorful Legend of Zelda and Mario pictures! The majority of Zelda and Mario games never fail to make the art pop out. Recreating these colorful worlds is part of what makes these pictures my top favorite of the year.
The second reason why I picked these three pictures is because of their wonderful lighting and mood. These pictures are very special to me because it showcases my vast improvement over the year.
Now the most important reason why I love these pictures is because of Kadir Alaydrus’s (@kadztoyz) advice. He is my toy photography sensei and has taught me everything I know about this beautiful type of photography. I’m eternally grateful for everything he has taught me and I hope I can make him proud with my pictures in 2019! 🙂
Here’s to a wonderful new year! 😀
