Hi guys! This is probably refreshing to most of you. No rants, no wished figures or figure pre-orders… these are actual photos that I took myself! After SUCH a long time! I don’t really think that my figure photography has been missed by many (since they’re not really that good compared to others ^^;) but I did miss taking photos of figures. After all, it’s the most practice I can get even if I don’t get out of the house!
Before I go on further, yes, I do know I’ve been lazy with blog updates lately. Most of the time, I’m active on twitter and plurk. Micro blogging just promotes laziness in one person! Not to mention because it can only consist of a sentence or two and you can do it anywhere… since you can even tweet/plurk on your mobile phone!
That pretty much isn’t an excuse to neglect my figure photography and reviews though… which is why I apologize for that .*bows*
New figures have piled up and besides from Saber Lily ~Distant Avalon~, I made it a point not to open my future incoming figures unless I actually reviewed them. At least, that’s my motivation to make reviews as of the moment. ^^;
Since acquiring my new baby, Seiya/Celize (a Lumix LX3, in case you’re wondering) last week, I have been tinkering around with her, but as proven by my photos below, I’m still PWNED by her.
I have made an attempt to use some custom settings and using the Aperture priority setting for the above photo (the larger one). As you can see, Saber Lily has a yellowish tone on her… an effect of the wrong white balance setting I used, which I realized a bit late. *fails* The smaller photo on the left is how Saber Lily looks like with the intelligent Auto setting — which is, pretty intelligent.
After setting up for this trial shoot, I have also realized that I needed a larger backdrop and a piece of cartolina is not enough. I have to brainstorm still what would be the ideal backdrop material I can use. Most options point to cloth, but I’d rather it would be the last option. Any suggestions?
Well, I’m taking baby steps in the transition from a point and shoot to a more advanced camera, so, hopefully, I’ll get the hang of it soon!
I feel like a total ‘tard asking this, but, would you prefer having figure reviews with me using the Auto settings for now? or would you rather see how I utilize the other custom settings? I’d like to hear your ideas :)
Halp please?: Since no one was really paying attention in Twitter, I might as well post it here too (since it is a bit more or an update post more than anything). I need help from comrades in SG, if you’re willing enough… a friend was asking me to purchase this manga for her and it’s listed on eBay.com.sg, and the seller, I think would only ship domestically. So, if anyone can help me with it, please tell me! Do not worry about the fees because I have cash on hand in my Paypal account so I can pay you right away! thank you! *bows*
