Quick as a Wink – Photo Challenge #1

All that kept coming to my mind for this first photo challenge, “Quick as a Wink” (submitted by Jody), 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. 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 and I have a LOT more to learn about this craft before I’m able to illustrate an entire book!

Anyway, here’s hoping y’all enjoy my first attempt. πŸ™‚

Thanks again to Jody for taking the time to submit the phrase “Quick as a Wink” – it was fun inspiration!
