A fun way to to spice up holiday photos


  • A toy or figurine
  • A holiday, which my be as simple as a Sunday drive


  • You'll generally want to put your toy at the bottom-left or bottom-right of the frame so that the background is still the main subject.


  • Aim your camera at the subject and half press the shutter button until it focuses, then compose your shot and fully press the button. You'll want the toy to be in focus rather than the background


  • Be careful not to cast your own shadow over the toy.
