Elephant for my Valentine

Wed, 6 Feb 2013

I thought that the popup elephant I made the other day would make a nice Valentine project – I hope that #truelove agrees!

Looking at the original I thought it might be better with a head not made from a cube but slightly shortened front to back. After a little experimentation I came up with this prototype.


Which then developed into this project.


And it still squashes down nicely ready to pop up!

Do you like the bokeh in the first picture? 35mm f/1.8 lens – looking good!
