I was recently asked to take some promotional photos for my daughter's school of these traditional Waldorf silk marionettes. I think they turned out quite nice, and I hope the school is able to use them for a brochure or poster or whatever.
I thought the shoot would be quite easy, but as it turned out, it is quite difficult to hold a marionette AND take the picture at the same time. I ended up using my 12 second timer a lot, which was hard in its own rite since I was then photographing blindly (without seeing the picture composition at the time of the shot). Interesting, to say the least, and a great learning experience. I'm always up for learning new things! Next time I'll bring an assistant :)
