Behind the scenes of 2 shoots
The top image is the set up for Karas: Ground Zero. I used another light, a tracing table, which I manipulated by hand as the pic was being taken
The middle image was for Battle Tanker Optimus Prime. It took about 7 shots, but the last two were:
1 with Backfiery (the flying jumping robot attacking Prime) and 1 without Backfiery. This makes it easier when editing in photohop to have the figure above ground.
The cardboard is from a Star Wars dvd display.
The bottom pic is where I placed another lamp used for the Transformers shot. It's placed at an angle similar to the lamp in the mid pic, but on the opposite side (right). Oh yeah, that's Hot Toys classic Predator which my gf gave me for xmas. :-D I'm nearly done with his diorama.
The foamboard tri-fold in the back is my fold out diorama for Black Rock Shooter figures.
