The Process

Homies are both tiny and highly detailed.  That makes them easy to carry but extremely difficult to shoot in the foreground of anything larger than a thimble.  To add to the complexity, they aren’t receptive to flash photography, rarely catch the sunlight, and fall over at the slightest breeze (or insect). In order to properly capture their elaborate expressions, one needs to use macro imaging.   However, macro photography is not conducive to simultaneously capturing distant backgrounds (or immediate backgrounds for that matter).  The resulting, and only mildly successful, process is then a combination of tedious positioning, some sort of adhesive (tape, glue, band-aid, or gum), and a ton of failed images.  I hope you enjoy my selections as much as fellow tourists have enjoyed laughing at my goofy process.
