Just Having Fun


A fun photo project done on a cold winter day.

During the cold winter months I sometimes turn to an indoor photo project just for fun.  I’ve had considerable fun with these wooden mannequins on occasion.  One particularly cold day I came up with this concept of having the mannequins devise their own hot-tub on the kitchen stove.  There is a bit of Photoshop trickery here.  The pot was shot filled with water, without the mannequins and also shot with the mannequins but without the water.  The camera was on a tripod and nothing was moved between the 2 shots.  The 2 images were then combined in Photoshop to give the final photo.

You may see future photos of my “woody people” on the blog.  I’ve got a notebook full of ideas and have already shot some of them!

About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
