Featured Photo Wednesday – Jo Zimny

I love a photo that comes from the simple idea of why not! Why not photograph Ironman on an Iron. Thinking outside the box is the creativity that pushes us. The more you think outside the box, the more ideas you will come up with. Thanks for sharing Jo, you made me smile today!

If you have a photo you would like to have featured, please email me at submissionsatdigitalcamfandotcom . Every Wednesday I’ll spotlight a new photo. Don’t forget to include links to your photography site, Flickr, twitter you get the point, we want to be able to see your other work! For more detailed info on how to, check out the Featured Photo detail page!


I originally bought this tiny replica of Ironman because he was red (my favourite colour) and decided that I could use him for different photo shoots, which I have. Now the iron he’s riding on is my old one that I’ve had for a while it wasn’t heating up as well as it once did so figured it was time for a new one. I’ve since donated the iron (without ironman) to ARC a local charity that takes used appliances and clothing.

The idea for the photo just kind of came to me one day. I have recently learned to use some different processing programs and wanted to try something new. As you can see, I put fire coming out of the iron to give it the appearance of movement. I also put Ironman and the iron in the sky, which I thought was most appropriate. I thought of how some of the super heroes have flying machines but Ironman doesn’t have one. He does tend to be propelled by his rocket feet, but I wanted to add something more. This was my opportunity to create a special flying machine just for him and as you can see, I gave him an iron. Not as glamorous as some perhaps, but I thought “now what else would Ironman ride!”
