" Toy Camra" is a film technique which usually designates photographs shot in (35mm) film using an inexpensive camera with a plastic lens. Essentialy, their presentations are characterized by brassy colors, unsharp details, dreamy qualities to the overall patina. So popular is this photographic trend, that many camera manufacturers are programming their devices to shoot in "toy camera" mode. But the digitized versions don't always work well for fully expressing the concept. Toy Camera with 35mm film reminds me of impresionistic watercolor art. The portrait of MP and Pooie on the railroad tracks does not qualify as "toy camera", since it was shot with a 35mm SLR Pentax, glass lens. However, there is no denying the film grain quality of the details, especially as the shadows dissolve into the far background. (Compositionally, it is one of my favorites ever). It, like the others, were all scanned from negatives via Canon 9000F photo scanner, capable of scanning a wide variety of negatives and photos.
The rest of the group were shot around town, and the Liberty Park Marina, where our doggies have taken up temporary residence most winter afternoons.
