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 Iâ€™m a bit more experienced with taking pictures, I decided to re-do Subaruâ€™s photos:
Lately Iâ€™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. Iâ€™m also trying a few different things with respect to photographic technique. Iâ€™ve switched to the cheap 50mm f/1.8 lens for all my figure pictures, and Iâ€™m spending more time performing post-processing. My figure reviews take a lot longer to complete, but I think the time spent is worthwhile.
