Culture Japan’s Mirai Suenega (末永みらい) – the Nendoroid (ねんどろいど ) version. A product from Good Smile Company
Setup – Canon EOS 60D with EF 100mm f2.8 Macro
1/250 | f/11 | ISO 400 | AWB
Group A using Canon 580EX II at the front right at 1/16. Group B using Canon 430EX II at left back on 1/32. Both flash are diffused.
Mirai was very difficult to balance. The default stand didn’t work well with the setup. So I improvised by using a receipt, folded it to balance with her hair.
The robot (which I will find out the name later) was placed on the transparent stand instead.
This photo was entirely STRAIGHT OUT OF CAMERA in terms of exposure and color. I did a bit of cloning for product defects, and removed the transparent stand that’s holding the robot. It’s FLYING!!!!!
First frame to final frame, less than 15 minutes. Using 2-light setup instead of my usual 3-light setup.
