Subaru Photo Reshoot (or Angry Girl in the Snow)

Back when I really did not know what I was doing, I took this picture of Subaru, the cutest amputee ninja around:

Man that looks bad. The background is bad. The figure looks bad. Everything is bad. The rest of the review’s pictures were just as bad. Now that I’m a bit more experienced with taking pictures, I decided to re-do Subaru’s photos:

Lately I’ve been making an effort at providing an interesting backdrop for my figure pictures. I think it makes for a much more appealing photo, and the backgrounds are a lot of fun (albeit rather time-consuming) to create. I’m also trying a few different things with respect to photographic technique. I’ve switched to the cheap 50mm f/1.8 lens for all my figure pictures, and I’m spending more time performing post-processing. My figure reviews take a lot longer to complete, but I think the time spent is worthwhile.

    I am actually somewhat disappointed on the quality of Subaru from Gathering. It’s not as good as it could be. There been fewer worthwhile gathering for me to pick up recently, but I did pick up the new saber lily which is due for later this month.

    Yeah, it’s particularly annoying when something in the background doesn’t come out right when I’m taking photos, and then I have to halt the photoshoot to make repairs or alterations.

    >> Wolfheinrich
    Yeah, I’d agree with that; it’s not quite as good as their ORI stuff although admittedly, part of my opinion is because she’s 1/7 scale rather than 1/6.

    I’m probably skipping Saber because I’ve preordered GSC’s one, but I’m getting her clone (the blonde girl from Princess Lover). I see that they’re also doing another run of Asuka on the motorcycle and I’m really torn as to whether I want that one or the Vispo one that is sadly out of stock.

    Wow you are right, they are doing another run of Asuka bike, that’s a fantastic release, it is one of the most brilliant Gathering kit to-date, you should get it. Total Asuka hottest there!

    Really cool pics.Say, from what series is this from?

  7. Tier says:

    She is from Beat Blades Haruka, an h-game from Alicesoft. The game has also been adapted into two hentai OVA episodes, but sadly Subaru has only a token appearance in both.
