My precious!06 August, 2010 by Kazesuki
Smuggled back from Akihabara at escalated prices, this is like the last piece on display there. It’s cost twice as much as the initial pre-order launch. Lesson learned from this, if you find something damn nice and it’s like coming back into your head periodically, pre-order it!
The setup i use for shooting the figurine is pretty simple. Make a windowed box out of cardboard with tracing paper covering the windows. Remember! windows must be cut out from all sides. Attach white paper or other colored paper/ cloth for the backdrop, place a lamp on either side or top of the windows. This would create a mini-studio with diffused lighting.
Over here, I connected the USB to the camera and MacBook Pro to get a clearer view of the sharpness of the figurines on the bigger screen. Use a tripod! Viola!
This is pretty much how I did the shoots for all my previous posted figurine photos.
Just walking along taking a few photos here and there. Looking for that special something. Or perhaps wandering around appreciating the life around me.
