I’m having way too much fun photographing these action figures…
I wanted to take some photos with more than one figure to get some more depth into the scene.
A black plastic plant tray works great as a security fence.
I lit this guy with a small LED flashlight, which gives a stark contrast to the darkness around him.
It’s amazing how changing the area of focus can tell an entirely different story.
These figures are so detailed, they make for some great subject matter for experimenting with lighting and depth of field, and the best part is that they don’t move — except for when I bump the table and they all fall over like dominoes.
