I’ve run into a bit of a dilemma about taking picures of my figures. As of now I have three figures that I have yet to taken pictures of. That isn’t that much, less then some I know, but I’ve had them for about three months now and have been trying to get pictures of them. I dont have 80+ figures so I want to get pcitures of the ones I do have. However, due to the fact that the scenery outside is horrible, I’ve been a bit reluctant to go take pictures. It’s either snow, or melted snow and mud. Which doesn’t add the most vibrant colors to the figure shoot background.
I’ve tried to take pictrues inside, I’ve even looked at the guides and posts people have done. The guides and information out there is great, but all of my pictures taken inside suck. They’re absolutely horrible. The color of the figures was either off or it was dark around the edes of the figure, I tried using the reflector and everything but nothing seemed to work. So, I’m in a bit of a dilemma.
It wouldn’t be so bad, its only three figures after all, but I’m expecting four more figures realativly soon. Two I ordered from hlj, Alter Nagi and Hikaru, should arrive as soon as hlj acually processes my request for shiping available items (It’s been almost a week). Another two that I ordered from tj_han from his bazaar thing. Ironically, the GSC Nagi and Hikaru…yeah. Anyways, I’m not too sure what to do. I want to get pictures of the three I have before the four more come but the scenery isn’t too good. I’ll probably have to take it with less then great background and go re shoot them sometime when its nicer outside, but it feels a shame to just have to take not too good picutres because of the background.
The other problem I have is I’m also reluctant to actually take my Alter Fate Testarossa figure outside for a shoot. Very intricate and big so I dont want it to break. I suppose I could go just a bit outside with like a card table for more stability, but again the scenery wouldn’t be the best.
So, thats my rant on my problem :D
