10.06.2011 - For anyone who has not heard about “Toy Photography” it’s becoming an art form for those who love collecting toys and taking photography as a hobby. The interest started picking during the past two years. Originally the concept has been around as early as the late 1990s to early 2001.

There’s one individual who started taking photos from way back of 2003 and that’s Brian McCarthy. His portfolio shows some interesting kind of inspiration and speaks volumes of emotion that is expressed by his composition. He has released a photo book of his works and still captivates a lot of people getting inspired to try “Toy Photography” as a concept.

In the Philippines “Toy Photography” slowly is getting into the mainstream pop culture scene and a group was established in late 2007. The interest has spawned some categories that define the hobby as expressive as taking photos of real people.

You can say “Toy Photography” is not longer just featuring Art Toys but also all kinds of toys that can be used for the composition. Starting this month we’ll be featuring some of the most interesting works by the members of the local group in Facebook. They have been around in the social network since 2008 and had taken residence on Facebook originally as just page to featuring some of the composition done by two people who has been into the hobby as early as 2001.

For this week we’re featuring some of the best photos dated from October 1 to 5, 2011. These are based from composition and the most “thumbs up” as well as the “wow factor” that made it to this feature...
