Thanks. The light bothers me too. I did the shot quickly cuz the longer I took the fucken weirder I felt about it. So I couldn't get the settings quite right on my camera when shooting. Tried to balance it out as best I could in editing. It was a bright day.

There are other things that bother me about it, but overall I'm satisfied with it.

Thanks so much. I pour serious hours into diorama stuff because buying it just isn't worthwhile to me. Especially since Sci Fi stuff is seriously expensive on top of my 70 to 100 dollar figures.
>>
>>7701640
>because buying it just isn't worthwhile to me.

don't know if this stems from the same mindset that i have, but i just need to get some thoughts out i have about this whole toyphotography hobby.

i love to recreate the atmosphere and vibes of certain source materials (videogames mostly) by getting the figures and doing what the figures would do. BUT i just came to a point where i feel limited in what i'm doing by only being able to recreate, but not to create.

i want to be able to express visual emotions and a tonality without a source material, with something i came up with on my own. i'd love to be skilled enough to have Figures and dioramas based on designs i did on my own, making the process more of what i came up with myself rather than taking existing characters and being limited to the characters authentic behaviour.
i just feel like this is just more of an art form if the stuff was created by the photographer, being able to really get his own vision into perspective without relying on this stuff.

but.. its just my own autistic interpretation of all this being art, making too much of a hassle about taking photos of toys.

Just take up two hobbies: One is literal toy photography and the other is Laika tier sets and figures designed by you. My man moonshine animations tore apart half his figma collection and created new , albeit generic characters out of the pieces. If you aren't willing to go that far then yeah you'll always be constrained. I'll still praise effort when I see it even if it is just recreations of other media.
>>
>>7701726
That's interesting to read. I think we're always trying to recreate what figures would do in their respective universes. I think it's only natural unless you're aiming for something funny with figures doing what they usually don't. For every figure there's always a backstory so we're kinda limited by that sometimes, I know it happens to me. As far as dioramas go, they're ok but I prefer real enviroments.

I'm more into Lego so I can express myself creatively in that medium, but I don't really take photos of them. I don't know if you are into customs, but I guess if you are that it would allow for you to build your own characters. The Mega Bloks anon that posts here seems to make some of his own figures too by swapping body parts and the like - maybe this might interest you? Again, I'm not an action figure kind of guy, but there must be a line of figures that allows you to swap parts out between characters to create your own. Once you have characters, you can build the dioramas from there as you have a staring point from which to work upon.
>this being art
Don't detract from your hobby anon. Art, by definition, is just the expression of human creativity and imagination, and toy photography is certainly a form of art.

So I have a pretty extensive collection and have been wanting to get back into toy photography myself as it's been years since I took some proper photos. I'm no pro by any means but I would consider placing these characters, with their established attitudes and mannerisms, in opposite roles. Subvert expectations in a sense. Then work in between the two extremes and then just do whatever you want.

Not saying I've done any of that, but logically I feel like it will give you a better experience working with your figures and may allow you to start creating rather than recreating.

>>7701845
Yeah I know what you mean, I haven't done it personally because I have no problem recreating(yet) but it's always an option, it's all about creativity. To me, seeing a character doing the opposite is always funny, it always makes me chuckle, that's what I get from those pictures. I don't know if that's the author's intent but that's my reaction.

A "problem" that I always have is the setting. Some characters look odd in some environments, like having spiderman in the mountains or robocop in the dessert, stuff like that. It looks off to me.

>>7701854
There are definitely different styles out there. Some people like to recreate action sequences with fireworks and explosions(which is kinda being overused especially with stormtroopers)
Others like to just pose their figure, make it look cool and take a pic.
I think I like doing that you mentioned the most. I kinda like letting the person looking at the picture know what happened or what's gonna happen, you know?

I think it’s because you use characters with very established personalities. Try using nameless characters and you’ll feel more freedom in creating scenarios. I guess that’s why Stormtroopers are so prevalent in Insta, they’re easy to use as self-inserts.

Just shoot what you like.

This is a good shot. The stand is almost unnoticeable and the framing is good.

>>7702313
this is good advice.

What I like to do is I'll place a personality onto my figures when I get them. Or actually most of the time I don't know the established personality of the character, cuz I never seen the source material. That helps too.

never thought if them as that. I always thought of the skeletons as just people living their lives and having to deal with wacky stuff. Transformers I think of as their character. If they hardly have character I try to give them some character.

It's shame it got discontinued. Hots is pretty dead right now and the only figures from Blizzard we get are Overwatch characters. Which is totally unfair considering characters like Gul'dan, Kerrigan, Artanis or Diablo are iconic not only for that company, but for gaming world as a whole and have several semidecent novels written about them while Overwatch is just forgettable fps.

Sad thing is that characters like Ragnaros or Anubarak are lore dead and don't have enough fans, so we probably will never get their toys.

The other one has more of a fuck it type of photography, minimal effort put into it. Not that we have professionals in this thread but you can see more dedication in the photos posted here.

With that said, toy photography is toy photography so no, I don't think we need two threads.

>>
>>7707589
no.

/toy/ is traditionally so, so I guess I'm used to threads being dead for a bit.


>>7707717
The other one's more "let's have fun and play with toys" and this one's more about composition and proper shooting and trying to get better with your shots maybe. Which is why people will post in here asking form general tips and such.

>So do you post in the Thread About Toys?
Yeah. I post in both, but I don't post the same photos is each.

I think each thread has it's place.
>>
>>7707810
Hah yeah. I shoulda gotten some shots of her off to the side not on the lines, but I really wanted the lead lines to point towards the subject so I had to put her in the center of the street.

I like the height of the first photo but the centering of the second one, but neither completely.

Thanks btw.

In previous threads, a few anons have stated they feel this general can be a bit too snobby/one for namefags at times.

While they both seem to serve the same purpose, they both hit slightly different goals. This general would be where I come for more technical advice if I needed it with the other general been the place I'd go to ask about fun little items I can use in my photos.

It wouldn't hurt to have them both together though, as a little variety from the serious professional type of photos is always nice.

Me, no. I dont want to spam my photos in a bunch of threads. I already post in the skeleton thread and this one. These two are enough. But I see why the other one would be used. They just wanna chill and play with their toys. This thread is different. sometimes people ask for advice on how to improve , get tips on photography, and try to get better. And since there are critiques going out it can get a bit heated.

>controversial subject.
It's really not tho.

for instance a pose thread is essentially serves the same purpose as a photo thread or a thread about toys on the surface level, but that's really where the similarities would end.

Shit there are tons of other threads that, while unique, are completely pointless other than a general blog type post or personal inquiry, that could easily have been put into a general. But those threads have potential to result in something that could end up being classic /toy/.

I think one of the most important things to do when using a monitor as your backdrop is to try to match the lighting of your background. That way, the character doesn't stick out like a sore thumb, and as a bonus you'll get to experiment with new lighting techniques. Screen brightness and your camera's white balance settings are also very important things to be mindful of, since it can easily pick up on the light coming from your monitor and make the background look washed out or too obviously a flat surface. Hope this helps.
>>
>>7709693
maybe Should I turn down the brightness?

>>7709703
yes. this is good advice. It's also the toughest thing. not having your figure look like it's just standing in front of a screen. You guys did a good job with it.

I might give it another shot.

It helps to have another source of lighting illuminating the figure and the background, so it “sets” them on the same plane.
