All that kept coming to mind for “Quick as a Wink”, was a hummingbird. The correlation is obvious but sadly it’s not hummingbird season… Hmmmm… How do I photograph a hummingbird in wintertime?
Well, I make my own hummingbird of course!
I have seen paper theatre photo illustrations done before and I have always wanted to give it a go myself. So I created each individual illustration with a hummingbird as my main character and then photographed my mini-theatre scene. I actually think that this kind of photo illustration could be fun for a children’s book one day. However, it’s not as easy as it looks – I have a LOT more to learn about this craft before I’m able to illustrate an entire book! For those folks out there who are curious about how I did these photographs, please check out the pics of my mini theatre below >>>
