Action Figure Photography

Just playing around with my Nikon and SB600. Trying to get the right exposure using an external flash.

Both my models, Elizabeth and Emmy were gone so I used my comic book props.

I like it.

Someone needs help…

Here’s another photo opportunity I had today with the blue sky peeking through the clouds.

Again, I was sitting inside and saw the clouds part and the sun peaked through…so I ran outside with my ACTION FIGURE, put him (Superman) on my tripod and shot some stills with a natural sky in the background.

I tried shooting him in the shade at first but it was “blah” then I tried using my flash just wasn’t getting the right shadows so I moved out of the shade and in direct sunlight.

I like this one the best.

Interesting that it came out so well because Superman needs the sun – The Dark Knight Returns Comic by Frank Miller.

Yes, I own that Graphic novel as well. 

….and I still have Batman, The Joker.and Power Girl to name a few of my Action Figures I’m thinking of shooting.

Got my work done for the day and decided to try something with “my toys.”

Liz calls them “dolls” to which I immediately correct her like a character from The Big Bang Theory, “THEY ARE ACTION FIGURES!” It’s this loving banter her and I have…

I had an idea and since I’m off this week for Spring Break, I decided to shoot from a different perspective…mind you this is just a test shot. I went into the garage, dusted off an old box, pulled out some ACTION FIGURES and did a quick set up and shoot, I’ll do it better later…

And yes for all you people out there saying, “He has Action Figures?!”

Yes, I do.

I busted them out to shoot this and it’s a variation from the Web of Spider-man comic book title aptly named, The Incredible Hulk has just spotted Spiderman – Cancel Christmas.

So there…you know more about me that you need to…and sad to say, some of you have confirmed your suspicions.



PS – YES! I have that comic…just have to find it!
