Hell of a thing to do to a bear…

Now before everybody panics; no animals were harmed in the production of these images!

The subject/model for the photos is a small soft toy who, even though I’ve had him for years, doesn’t actually have a name. I just refer to him as “Office Bear” as he’s usually sat on the shelf in my home office until I need him to be an occasional subject for when I want to practice some photographic technique or other, but for the most part he spends his days just sat there.

Given that the UK is experiencing some proper winter weather at the moment, I wanted to jump on the bandwagon and get a few “snow pics”. So like every man and his dog (or in this case: bear) out I went.

Office Bear got placed in the snow and patiently sat there with the same resigned expression that he always has whilst I messed around with some fill flash with a warming gel on it.

About five minutes later, with some shots in the bag we came back in and to prove I don’t take my models for granted etc; Office Bear was placed on a radiator to warm up & dry out before going back on his shelf until he’s need again.

As always, click on an image to view full size.

By the way, I don’t know if any one has noticed; but this is my third blog post in as many weeks. How long can I keep that up? – check back next week & we’ll see….
