My first thought for this theme was board games, because we have a closet full of them. And I miiiiiight have been harboring a secret hope that I could incorporate kittens into my game pictures...kittens playing chess? Battleship? It seems like a brilliant idea, right? I went to the game closet, grabbed a bunch of games, and tried to get started.
Setting up lights and tiny game pieces in the house with two kitties on the loose was definitely a challenge. I got so frustrated the first night I decided I'd switch gears and try something different tonight.
I’m not much for video games and haven't played them much since the Nintendo and Sega Genesis days. Sonic the Hedgehog for the win!
Andrew still enjoys gaming and plays online sometimes to keep in touch with some of his friends who live far away. For Christmas last year, his sister got him a virtual reality headset, so I thought that might work well for this theme.
Thankfully I didn’t have to worry about Andrew eating any of the props or knocking over the lights while I took photos. I did completely forget to check my ISO tonight, so these are pretty noisy. Doh!
In the end I liked the photo of Charlie and his domino masterpiece more than the VR headset, so there we are.
And now for some more outtakes. :)
