The arrival of digital cameras means that creating imaginative photographs of action figures, toys and models is easier than ever. Once impressive toy photography was confined to professionals with impressive studios. Now you can do it in your own backyard. Thousands of people around the world today enjoy toy photography with both general and specialized groups on Instagram and Facebook.

This will be a small, hands-on class. Bring your toys, action figures, scale models, dinosaurs or dolls. Limited to 15. If there is enough interest there will be a second workshop in the fall.
