Bowtruckle is, apparently, a character for the Fantastic Beasts film, book, comic (?), I’m not sure which.
But this bendy little toy, seen in a local toy shop, looked like potential shoot material. So here she/he is – in a studio constructed version of what Bowtruckle’s home looks like (in my imagination!!)
Photography is all about controlling the light. And this image came from an exercise where I was looking to light a portrait with a single light – in this case, a masked polystyrene head ( with sunglasses, fur hat and scarf ). She (?) was lit by a single flash head fired through a light-modifier to produce a very narrow vertical strip of light ( as seen in the reflections in the sunglasses. I’m not sure if those bands of light help – or distract. Any thoughts? )
