Weapons and Tools…

Been a while since I posted even though I have kept taking the photos!  I came across these and lit them to make them appear slightly unreal given the nature of their roles and reasons for existence.


The Lone Ranger…and Tonto

Had a lot of fun lighting these although to be fair the Tonto figure was a lot more fun and easier to get some effective and dramatic lighting set-ups. The coloured lighting made them more cinematic which is always the challenge and intention.

Darth Vader and Kylo Ren

Another posting, this time of both Darth Vader and Kylo Ren. Most of the time on these is spent on the Photoshop work on the lightsaber glow, but at least I now have an ok and not too time consuming method of working on this aspect of the images.

Bits and bobs for the setting/locale was pretty useful particularly on the Kylo Ren character set up…..More to follow!


Quorra: Tron

I have been taking a lot of pics lately of the Disney Infinity figures I have collected and been waiting to find the time to capture, so quite a few posts on the way.

I must admit I really enjoyed lighting and studying this figure, the fact that it/she was black-clad helped in the lighting aspect, trying different set-ups to both reveal and hide aspects, very cinematic as a figure I thought.

Some similar poses but very different lighting for emotive effect, hope you enjoy.

Mulan….part deux! and a Hello Kitty!

Another figure was acquire (not by me!!!) and as before wanted to photograph it before play and smaller hands changed the pristine condition…and a bonus Hello Kitty character. Probably the last of the figures but who knows and they were good while they lasted, very interesting to light and photograph.

Luke and Leia

Start of a few postings now of these Disney Infinity figures. Larger than my usual scale so a lot more lighting considerations to take into account…likewise the focus and focus pulling on the duo images….More to follow.

Jurassic Park

These creatures from Jurassic Park are quite old now but stored in the loft. They are toys released from the first movie way back when, thank heavens for loft space where things can get ‘stored’ then forgotten about.

The Triceratops was the most fun to capture but pretty pleased with a few other images actually and with the current vogue for black backgrounds in portrait photography all work pretty well.

Some similar poses but enjoyed lighting and highlighting the skin, alas no feathers! haha
