Yo, guess I still haven’t killed the blog. Well I’ve been very busy with studies and stuff so no time for blogging, but I’ve been active with photography, well from time to time that is. Those that follow me on flickr know that I’ve been taking loads of pictures, be it of figures or landscapes. Anyway, this time I decided to try on my figures a technique called Low-Key. Low-Key lighting is a style of photography which often uses only one key light, direct light to the subject or reflected on a reflector. It’s not easy to achieve the effect directly on figures, unless you have a huge table with the source very far away from the subject, otherwise you have to enhance the darks/blacks of the picture on editing programs.
Word of advice, if you are using Chrome you’ll notice that the colors of some pictures are a bit weird. That is Chrome/Picasa fault because on Photoshop or any other program or browser they look nothing like this.
Jo from Bakuten is back after a long period of absence. Here the light was pointed directly at her. Black and White conversion with selective color.
Mirei-san lovely as always. Same as Jo above.
Always liked shooting Chou’un. Great model indeed, and low-key is perfect for her. Couldn’t decide which one I liked the most so I decided to upload both. These pictures I had the light point directly at a reflector and from there to the subject.
Couldn’t resist this black and white version so I had it printed at a shop with 30×45 cm and framed it for myself 🙂 . Same technique as above.
Louise peek-a-boo? She also returns. Same technique as above and the same for all below.
This one turned out a bit scary but also very elegant.
Chua Churam returns also. Happy faces like this, not easy to find.
Also really like how this one turned out. Very tempted to have it printed, then frame it ^_^ .
I’ll keep taking pictures of everything I find interesting to my eyes, landscapes, figures, people, gundams, animals, whatever. If you are interested is seeing that I have besides figures you can click the link on the right bar under My Flickr or click here.
