This is my latest attempt at shooting action figures. Deadpool rocking out.
What is notable about this image is that it is the first time I played around with practical effects.
I wanted to give a smokey effect to add some ambience to the image. Some smoke effects to go with the rock concert feel. I started using actual smoke, but my smoke machine, which is perfect for LEGO sized images, wasn't really sufficient for the much larger 20" Deadpool figure.
So I went back to the ol'd standby: water in a spray bottle.
This is a peak behind the scenes. Along with the two speedlites at table height to provide side and rear illumination (think stage lights), I also had a speedlite on a stand in front of the figure to fill in the shadows.
I think it turned out pretty good. I am going to mark this attempt a success.
On to the next image - what shall I do next? Suggestions welcome.
