  1. What does the addition of the toy dinosaurs do to the images?
    It makes it seem very retro and makes the dinosaurs look realistic, almost like they were legit pictures with dinosaurs in them.

    What would they look without the dinosaurs?
    These images would just look like normal photos of some landscape.

    How does shadow and color play into these images?
    Shadow makes the dinosaurs seem more realistic, like they are actually there and the sub is actually beating down on a real dinosaur.

    What could you see doing that is similar to this?
    Using some sort of fake animals or toys and making them much bigger and having them look like they are real and were actually there.

    How do these images make you feel?
    These images make me feel interested, like it makes me wonder how he did that.

  2. The addition of a dinosaur makes the image look more creative and somewhat comedic. Without the dinosaur, the photos would be very generic and boring. The black and white image shows and plays with shadows the most, and it adds a cool realistic effect. I could see myself playing with miniature everyday things to make things look cool. They make me feel happy and want to see more.

  3. The toy dinosaurs makes the images more interesting. without the dinosaurs the image would just be a landscape photos they’d be boring. The shadow makes it look more realistic and the color catches the eyes and draws the viewer in. What I could do is use certain objects in my images and play with the size and make the images look realistic like the photographer did with the dinosaurs. These images makes me feel intrigued.

  6. What does the addition of the toy dinosaurs do to the images?
    Adding the toy dinosaurs to the photos adds more of a Jurassic Park kind of feeling to them.
    What would they look without the dinosaurs?
    Without the dinosaurs they would look a lot more boring. The photos themselves would still look good however adding the dinosaurs to them makes it more interesting.
    How does shadow and color play into these images?
    The shadows in these photos actually make the dinosaurs look more realistic, I mean you can still tell that they are toys but there is an immense amount of detail on the toys themselves
    What could you see doing that is similar to this?
    definitely using toys more often as props for my photos, or just taking another step further and instead of taking a plain nature-shot.
    How do these images make you feel?
    Happy, inspired. I really do like the idea, it reminds me of some toy dinosaurs I used to play with as a kid.

  7. It makes the photos look more interesting then they are. Without the dinosaurs the photos would still look amazing but it wouldn’t have the cool effect of adding the dinosaurs in the photos. With the shadow and color effect it makes the dinosaurs actually look like they are in those photos. Maybe I could do the same thing but without dinosaurs like a toy that will blend in more in those photos. These photos inspire me to do the same thing but with different toys. So to me they are really inspiring photos.

  10. What does the addition of the toy dinosaurs do to the images?
    The addition of the toy dinosaurs adds a nostalgic feeling to it. As if we where looking at a world in a much much much simpler time. And also all the magic of perspective. It appears that the dinosaurs are a lot bigger in comparison to their surroundings.

    What would they look without the dinosaurs?
    If the dinosaurs where not there, the photos would lack a lot of sense in the photo. The photos would capture more a perspective of the actual nature itself instead of the dinosaurs.

    How does shadow and color play into these images?
    Shadow and color play a huge role in this. it appears that sometimes the dinosaurs are as big as they are thought out to be, instead of just being toy dinosaurs. The shadows add depth, size and change the point of view.

    What could you see doing that is similar to this?
    Taking a picture of a toy soldier and manipulating the perspective to make it seem larger or much smaller.

    How do these images make you feel?
    They make me feel like a little kid again. f

  15. You just seem to look at the world with the perspective that dinosaurs are still alive. They would be just really lame photos and just wouldn’t have the same look as they do with them. They make them seem realistic and have a new way of complimenting the photos. I could take a ordinary toy and incorporate them into real life background. They make me feel pretty intrigued.

  18. the addition of toy dinosaurs allows the photographer to make the dinosaur appear bigger and often what the dinosaur is looking at appear smaller like with the ruins. without the dinosaurs the scaling is not there and it would just be an image of ruins or of water going through rocks. the shadow and light do play a good part in the images because it assists in seeing the toy dinosaur as realistic because the light attracts and distracts the eye from certain features. people have been doing this trick for a long time like the tourists who take photos of themselves holding the Hollywood sign long before the days of photoshop by adjusting the distance each subject has from the camera. images like these however still instill a sense of wonder about the world we live in because it is taking a toy and place and brings the dinosaurs back to life even if its just in these photos.

  22. The addition of the dinosaurs makes the photo look like it was shot in a completely different era. Without the dinosaurs the photos would be a lot more basic. The shadows make it look more realistic and the color adds vibrancy to the image. I like these images, they make me smile and I think it was a really creative idea. Something similar to this that I could do is take pictures of something from a different decade in a modern setting.
