For TABLE OF CONTENTS of all images in this thread please see Page 19

For TIPS on how these images are shot please see this thread




NOTICE: If you don't see the images in some of the older posts means I had used up the 10GB bandwidth for this month. I'm sorry these pictures can no longer be viewed until next month where the counter will be reset to zero and the pictures would then appear again. For the newer posts I am using another account so it is not affected. Enjoy !




All about Toys and Collectables as product shoots - mostly metal figures, soldiers, diecast tanks, planes, cars, swords and sometimes PVC figures as well...





Here goes......

Nicely taken :)

Personally I would separate the items, I find them too complicated/distracting here for eq: the shoes/dog/bowl or frame in front of the swords. Perhaps try positioning them differently but only if they add value to the photo. I don't see the relevance of putting a dog or shoes in front of swords, pic 1 would be great w/o the shoe and moving the tag a bit to the left (like in pic 4). The curvy part of the stand is also kinda distracting. Hope you don't my mind my 2cts. ;p Thanks for sharing....

Thanks for the comment Bro



"Katana" is one of the traditionally made Japanese swords (日本刀) that were worn by the samurai class of feudal Japan, also commonly referred to as a "samurai sword". These swords are razor sharp

The katana is characterized by its distinctive appearance: a curved, slender, single-edged blade with a circular or squared guard and long grip to accommodate two hands.

McFarlane Toys 6" Corpse Bride Series 2 - Victor




The one on the left is shot using the 50mm f1.8G on D5100 @ f16. This one right using 85mm Micro DX @f16


I noticed the 85mm is slightly better for product shoot. This corpse bride is about 6 inch tall. CONCLUSION - Each lens has its use and purpose!


Corpse Bride, often referred to as Tim Burton's Corpse Bride, is a 2005 British-American stop-motion-animated fantasy film. The plot is set in a fictional Victorian era village in Europe. Johnny Depp led an all-star cast as the voice of Victor depicted here.


For the updated images of this Figure please see Post 852

From this shot of the soldier's helmet and you will see the lights used, 5 Continunous light and 1 LED light centre for the "warmed" . Bckground lighting is DIY flash-box using SB700
