Figure Photography?

Recommended Posts

Coffee

I'm slightly chocked there isn't a thread for this already, at least not that I could find.

 

So, anyone else who likes to bring their figures out for some photography every now and then?

I'd love to see your pictures in that case!

Oh, and it'd be interesting to know what kind of figures you actually prefer to have as photo models.

 

I don't really have that many big or pose-able figures, but I take whatever I can and see if I can find a good spot for them. XD

Great idea for a thread! I think a lot of DD collectors start out with PVC. SirNarwhal and I do a lot of figure photography! Well, he does the photography, I hold the figures so they don't fall down. ^^;

My favorite of our shoots is Momohime, but I don't have that uploaded anywhere I could link to. Our backlog is HUGE though, we're like 500 figures behind. One day, maybe we'll actually shoot our whole collection...

I have a few figure pics that I took that I can share. I never do too many figure pics because of my camera, but I managed to get a few fairly good pics. Plus when my girls arrived they stole the spot light and extra funds my figures were getting. =3

The pic I took of Kureha is my all time favorite picture I have ever taken. I'm still looking to achieve the beauty I captured in that shot in my dollfie dream pictures. ^_^

WOW DA! Those pics are so nice! The winged girl looks so neat against the sky like that. And Momohime looks like she's kicking up snow behind her feet. Jubei looks REALLY hot in that version of her and I agree that the last shot is excellent. The movement in the background is great!

 

Very nice shots.

Ok, I finally uploaded some anime figure pics I did a while ago. None of these are what I'd call "great" but they aren't half bad. I took all these with my older Sony camera so they aren't as detailed as anything I've done for a while. I still hope yall enjoy them tho!

 

First up we have Hakufu Sonsaku from Ikki Tousen:

Also from Ikki Tousen we have Ryofu Housen and Ryomou Shimei playing Race Queens with one of my RC trucks:

Another Ryomou figure by a hydrangea flower:

And another Ryofu figure with some lantana and a day lily:

I can't recall this girls name but she's from the Read or Die anime, she's one of the paper sisters.

And lastly, my attempt at figure humor.

OMG!! I So want that Ayu, DA. Yuriko and I just ran through a marathon Kannon session and now it's her new favorite anime. I still prefer Clannad, but it was a bit too sad for her. Just what I needed, one more thing to save up for, lol. That's an amazing picture of her, too, by the way. I love the clouds behind her.

 

Baldylox's Pocky eating dinosaur was funny, especially Miku's reaction. Nicely done.

Thank you! It made perfect sense for Grimlock to be chomping those girls Pocky. I thought their expressions were perfect.

 

Grimlock eating pocky is priceless. Is that the original grimlock from the 80s or a remake?

 

Thanks! That Grimlock is my original G1 from back in the 80's when *I* purchased him off the toy store shelves. I kept all five of the Dinobots as I loved them so much. I also have my G1 Optimus Prime, Skylinx and Jetfire.

Man, I am so jealous of your Dinobots! I never had Swoop, but I had the other four! Oddly enough, when I (stupidly) sold my vintage TFs, I kept Grimlock! And he's the rare turquoise version from the Generation 2 repaints!

 

Rumor is that the Dinobots might get reissued by Takara, as a box set. I wouldn't expect that before 2014 though.

Heh, thanks! I always loved the Dinobots as a kid. I never had the reissues, only the originals. I sold off my TF's to fund my wedding. Boy did THAT suck.

 

A whole box set of them? In their original size? That would be one HUGE box! I saw pics of a combiner set with smaller Dinos in it at one time but I think it was a knockoff or custom set. It did look pretty cool tho.

Everyone takes so damn good picture!

Makes me feel like a complete photography noob...

Which I sort of is. XD

I look forward to seeing some more figurine photos by the members here.

I do a lot of figure photography but what I love the most to do is comics with my figures. I post them on my DevinatART site http://animatorar.deviantart.com/ I even have my Dollfie Dream girl photos there too.

I've only been into the figure scene for over three years, now. Having even a small variety of them makes it a bit difficult to take pics sometimes....

Best I could offer is to take advantage of "everyday life" scenes. I was getting a shrimp salad together when I thought: "Wow, Kohiru teasing Maochao with a shrimp would be funny!" So, I gathered them together in the kitchen and took this:

Another was after I had received a camera bag, the inner lining was such a stark orange color, I thought that my Asuka figma would provide an awesome contrast in a picture:

One of the very first figures/robots/etc. I'd picked up was one of Yamato's Macross 1/48th. scale VF-1J Valkyrie Fighter, being a Robotech fan from way back:

7275778398_9b7dc267c7_m.jpg

100_2334 by rattbastard, on Flickr

from a level angle, it's hard to tell how large it is. And, I've had comments that it looked "real" due to the two planks that it's sitting on blend into the background.

Here's a different angle that gives away that illusion:

7275776652_b569ffd998_m.jpg

100_2333 by rattbastard, on Flickr

With the well and the mesquite tree in the background, they look to close, along with the big "knot" in the board that it was sitting on!

 

 

 

A lot of what you can do, picture-wise, is all governed by your imagination...

So, I'd say just let the thoughts flow, and take advantage of any opportunity you get!!

I also started off with figure photography before having my first girl.

 

Figure photography are a good way to train your photo creation as the figure itself have its limitation. So you must keep working out a way to let it fit around the environment.

 

Some of my previous work I have uploaded ^_^

I also take pictures of other figures of many different kind.

Included in our household are three FIGMA/Revoltech (Woody, the one with the creepy face, Konata from Lucky Star and Yotsuba), I also sometimes have Danbo here from friends (I customize them) and take pictures of my own Storm Trooper Figures :3

Oh, and a lonely Sideshow Obi-Wan I'm repainting right now.

 

The Danbo I customized for a friend:

Lots o' trooper:

Obi-Wan (who's still unfinished, but at least looks a lot better than before):

I yet have to take pictures of my girlfriends figures, but maybe I should do that the next days :3

Gunter, those Sonico pics are awesome! I do feel bad for poor Zetsubou Sensei... he will probably die from blood loss due to being that close to the hotness that is Sonico.

Obi-wan looks significantly improved from Sideshow's original paint apps! I want to like Sideshow's figures, but so many seem to have some glaring flaw...

On the other hand, how awesome is it to have the X-Files' Cigarette Smoking Man standing next to Darth Vader?
