    Nice!!

    How did you achieve the background?
    Or more specifically, how do you setup your background?

    Is it me or I find that the shots are slightly out of focus/not sharp or its something I cannot explain well, esp for the figurine shots.

    Try more different lighting angles... it's pretty fun.

    hmm.. i've checked the full res pics, they're all sharp..
    but i also have a feeling that some of them look slightly soft from here.

    Blue tack... or use other things to back them up... I used the BG paper to prop up a figurine too for my wallpaper. Use other types of paper.

    ic.. but i prefer the shadow to be on the "ground" instead of against the "wall"
    nice BG btw!

    the other figurines had poses that are almost impossible to stand on its own, like one that's in a running position (front leg tipped toe, rear leg kicked backwards in the air)
    blu tack not strong enough.. i'll think of other ways..

    haruhi's face is indeed a little wierd on the actual figurine looks kinda flat.

    tried a shot with both hard and soft lighting, with a single 580 off-cam.
    hard light on right, soft light on left.



    setup:



    EDIT: dang! i realised that the left leg is a little loose

    I feel that this thread should be make sticky... because of the valuable techniques and setups by Frag.

    It is hard to find other more comprehensive coverage on the cheap and good setup.

    School Girl Figurine.

    Took me much effort to get it in position cos it is totally impossible to balance on its own.

    8. Jump shot :P


    9. Sit down pose


    I've setup shots for these too. but i'll leave it for u guys to imagine and workout how i did it before i post them up.


    EDIT: additional image.

    10. 3D Cross-eye Stereogram for 8. Jump Shot.
    How to view: (using correct viewing technique)
    Basically cross your eyes such that the 2 images below forms 4 images.
    Then slowly relax your eyes till the 4 images slowly come closer together such that it becomes 3 images (2 of them are overlapping)
    Fix ur eye positions and relax, while trying to focus on the middle (overlapped) image. <-- this might take some time for u to adjust, esp. 1st time viewers
    A 3D image will be formed from the middle image when it is in focus.
    Not everyone will be able to do so, but it is possible. For those who cant, then tt's too bad. keep practising :P

    First Guess:

    1. You took an image with the figurine first
    2. You remove the image and took a shot without the figuring
    3. Photoshop stack the 2 image etc etc.

    hmm. possible way. but nope, i didnt do it this way.
    It would be too troublesome to remove it and put it back into position for the 2nd time.. haha
