DroothR's figure photography thread!

Post by DroothR on Sun Dec 06, 2009 10:04 am

I haven't really done much with photography since my relationship breakdown 6 months ago, and just started getting back in the swing of things today.

After finishing today's photos, I realized that I don't seem to have posted any of my stuff on this board, so here's the thread where I'll post stuff as I put it online.

Thanks. Smile

Here is the first installment of my figure photography, a shoot testing the viability of digital display backdrops with a Dante (Devil May Cry) Revoltech figure, from last year.

All effects are done in-camera. No post-processing was done after the fact.

Overall I thought the test was successful, and plan on doing more with the concept some day.

The photograph that I feel turned out best was:

Here's the second installment of figure photography, today's test shoot with my new Halo Master Chef- er... Master Chief figure.

As you can see, nothing fancy going on here, no post-work, just getting down and snapping away.

I have to give kudos to McFarlane Toys, as this figure holds up surprising well at close range for such a small-scale figure. Most of the joints are good too, with only 2 exceptions (one of which I was able to fix, the other is still stuck).

Overall my favourite photograph would possibly be:



If only the background was softer, and less descernable as being weeds and a wooden fence, I would have prefered this one:

Valentine's Day photo shoot!

Despite the number of joints that this figure has, several key points of articulation (namely the elbows) look so bad when moved out of their primary sculpted position that they're basically useless, making the number of poses this figure looks good in very few.

Initially I was lacking in inspiration for this shoot, and all of my shots looked terrible. It wasn't until I moved over to a pile of dead shrub roots that it all came together, resulting in the photos you see above.

My favourite is probably this one:



Strangely enough, it gives me an "early 90's toy commercial" vibe. Wink

Although I feel that the illusion of scale was best achieved in this photograph:

Rummaging through my garage for things to sell, I finally found my 1st release Classics He-Man, so I opened him up (take THAT eBay! Wink), and got off as many shots as I could before the sun went down.

In my head, this shoot had a loose narrative concept: He-Man lost in a land unfamiliar, trecking to the West, hoping the radiant light of the sun will lead him home...

The outside part of the right knee joint is still warped, but the mis-assembled right wrist was easy to rectify. Reversed shoulders aren't too bad looking, and only the ankles appear to be moderately loose. The rest of the joints have ideal movement, and the paint seems pretty good. Cool

My favourite of this lot is easily:



Although that said, this one really does look good posted with this board's colour scheme:
