ARCHIVE 363 – MANNEQUIN

 

 


.Camborne, Cornwall: mannequin in a shop window; 9 Oct 2013.

I take shots of these dummies from time to time.  Here I was attracted by that loosely hanging, white hand, but now I’m also looking at the hairy red sweater with its horizontal stripes, and the plastic “water droplets” on those fashionably distressed jeans.  The black backdrop keeps it simple.

Technique: D800 with 70-300 Nikkor lens at 300mm; 400 ISO.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

  2. There can be something a little unnerving about mannequins!
    I took some photos inside a shop that sold shop fittings a few years ago and had a great time. The gallery of images from that day are on the link below should you fancy taking a look. Best wishes, Have a great day, Mr C 🙂

      I like your pictures, Mr C. Yes, mannequins can be unnerving, the unwavering stare – and the nearness to us, almost there (or here) I suppose, but still irretrievably distant. Thanks for the link. Adrian 🙂

    The black backdrop really makes those colours stand out. I used to have a collection of ‘hairy’ jumpers in the ’70s 🙂

This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
