Beady Eyes

I was putting things away before bedtime tonight as the family was heading off to bed. While doing so (and thinking about what to make a photo of) I stumbled upon this little guy hiding out behind a couple of teddy bears and staring down anyone coming up the stairs.

He looks a bit unhinged to me. Perhaps he's spent a little too much time alone in solitary packed away in the box since the kids have outgrown dolls.

Shot with 70-200 at 140mm, f4, 1/15th, iso 200 using two 430EX flashes - one pretending to be the upstairs hall light and another close to the camera to give 'Jimmy' some catchlights in the eyes.

  1. Nice - almost spooky, I like the lighting.
