Take Your Time

Week two of Twenty Two is here and chances are that some of us have already dropped a few of the resolutions we made at the New Year’s party. No worries. This theme for this week is on staying focused despite what is happening around you. How do we translate this into photography?

Previsualizing 2022

We’re already a week into the new year and oh boy, do we have a lot of exciting things planned this year. The #SiPgoesTGIF challenges continue this year and this is the first in a series of posts by me, Suné, SiP resident curator and fellow toy photography enthusiast.

In the SiP Summer Workshop 2021, participants were encouraged to make previs (short for previsualization, aka “previz”). I found it to be a very useful skill to add to my toy photography repertoire. It not only helps with planning the shot but also with making the image in your head a reality.

SiP conquers Korea

Getting Ready

At about 3 o’clock on Saturday, November 17, Haesook Kim and I started setting up snacks and drinks for the opening party of the Stuck in Plastic – A Toy Photography Exhibition. The exhibition already opened the day before. Yet we were having the party on Saturday so that more people could attend. Everything had to be ready by 4 o’clock.  At 4:01 we expected the first guests and at 4:30 we would start a live-stream with Boris, Stefan, Julien, Maëlick, and Karine.
