I am pretty much a frustrated photographer. I usually fail at taking decent photos (they end up mostly blurred, or just not good) and not having a camera of my own makes practice a bit difficult to do. Now that my brother has “permanently loaned” his old digital camera to me, I’ve been able to take more photos lately (although most of them are of Kagamiku). I know there are more people in the figure community who are more experienced and skilled than I am, so, if you can give any suggestions on how I can improve, please don’t hesitate to drop in a comment!
THIS, is my favorite pose for Kagamiku. You can even see it in my figma Kagamiku review (although it’s slightly different in this one). Is there any improvement from my first photo of her in this pose?
Another waterloo that I have is being able to apply the rule of thirds properly everytime — or taking a photo without any odd things in them (like the first photo). I think this photo is better than the others… what do you think?
The above photo is for something that you will see soon! ^^ I think Kagamin looks better in the pink backgrounds, everytime that I look into the orange ones, she looks a bit dark. Do you see the same thing too?
Blurred photo, as a result of shaky hands… one of my major problems @_@; I haven’t seen my brother’s mini tripod anywhere, so I had to make my hand as steady as possible… it phails though ><;; I also didn’t use flash on any of these photos — which is why sometimes, I like the photos in my figma Kagamiku review more — I used flash (that’s covered with paper) and it resulted in clearer photos (although dimly lit ones). Do you always use tripods for figure photoshoots?
This one, is pretty much similar to the previous photo — only this time, I used a grey-white background. It’s strange how the color dramatically changed and that Kagamiky suddenly looks yellow-ish here. Seems that the background colors affect how the light would affect the photo?
This is the setup I had for this photoshoot ^_^ Strangely enough, the light looks yellowish, but I swear it’s white and is flourescent. ><; Maybe it’s because the light’s pretty old and hasn’t been used for a while… or something. OTL
Any comments and suggestions are highly appreciated! Thank you for looking through the entry! :3
