Not every great photograph of our playsets will make it into one of our catalogues, but some photos have a special place in our heart and we wanted to share those with you.

Playset in the Snow

Posted on April 23rd by CedarWorks

The world always looks great after we get a big dump of snow, and I had to stop and take this shot as I drove into the office one winter morning… the subtle warmth of the cedar in contrast to the cold white snow was eye-catching.

Serendipity Sunrise

Posted on April 18th by Doug

Whenever we have photo shoots to showcase new products, I try to arrive at the set before sunrise in the hope of finding great light. This particular morning, for about 10 minutes, the sky was worth being there for.

Fake Miniature Frolic 16 Playset

Posted on April 18th by Doug

This is a photo of our Frolic 16 swing set, which we decided to have some fun with in Photoshop. By using either a tilt-shift lens, or faking it in Photoshop after the photo is taken, a photograph can be made to look like a miniature of a real-life object. It helps to be somewhat above and at a good distance from the subject, and in this case we had used a cherry-picker to get a nice, high vantage point of some of our sets… which turned out to be just perfect for simulating a tilt-shift effect. Look at the girl on the slide; you’d swear she was a little plastic person from a model train set, but in fact she’s the daughter of one of our Design Experts!

Here are a few interesting links if you’d like to learn more about tilt-shift photography:
