Mobile Trouble

Not the kind you're probably thinking. The kind you hang from the ceiling. The kind that seem unfeasibly difficult to photograph. Any tips?

I tried this one in different places; different lights; up close; from a distance, and think probably the outside shots are the best. But it was a challenge and I took a ridiculous number of photos.



The close up ones aren't too bad either, but don't look so mobile-like.


More mobile-like, but a bit lost?


It's made from egg box parrots, which are easier to make than they might look.  Step-by-step here.

What's not so easy is tying them onto the blinking sticks and getting the whole thing to balance.... But very satisfying when it does. I found a dab of glue on the knots helps, to stop strings slipping about and un-doing all that hard work.


They'd look lovely hanging from a branch... and a lot less hassle.

Or maybe add a bit of glittery sparkle and hang them on the Christmas tree?

  4. All the shots are fab, definitely think the outdoor ones look more mobile-y but the indoor ones look clearer.
