Deadpool Rocks

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.
