If it's indoors, it's about lighting, lighting, and more lighting. When you think you have enough, get another lamp.

>>5366323
>Any tips for someone who's never done photography before?
Well for starters, you need to have a camera. It's pretty much essential. :^)
Moving on, it helps to have a good sense of composition, like in art.

Things not to do:

*post uncropped, original size images
*post images that are out of focus
*use filters before knowing how to shoot properly
*go crazy with effects and post processing before knowing how to shoot properly
*use a phone camera

Besides all that, try using google to search for "Macro photography guide"
>>
>>5366323
Work with what you got, and learn how to use it.
Lighting is pretty much the most important part of any visual medium, so make sure you learn how lighting works, and make sure you have enough light sources. A light box can take you pretty far, especially when you start experimenting with new backgrounds.

>>5366333
I don't agree with everything here, though. You can do just fine with a phone if you apply yourself. I've used a phone camera and got out some really nice shots. Still, nothing can trump an actual camera, but if you can't afford it, hey, as long as it's clear, you're golden. Though, do resize your images. It's extremely helpful for sharing since giant sizes can make it a bitch for people with bad internet or small monitors. I generally divide the resolution by 4 or 2, but mess around and see what works.

How's the articulation on this guy? The arms look pretty good but it seems like the armor might be a bit hindering. If I hadn't gotten >>5363803 I'd planned on getting one of these guys instead.

How does one take pictures like these?
>>
>>5368924
What do you mean? Fully extend the arm and place the camera near the handl
>>
>>5368924
It's all down to camera placement. This one was done with a phone, but a real camera is easier because you can zoom in from a distance to get the same effect.
>>
>>5369083
I guess I should get that DLSR camera I've been looking into getting. It's very difficult with a smartphone at least for me.
>>
>>5369093
You just have to get clever and patient. My phone is big as fuck, but if you play around with the placement of the arms, you can get it looking believable.
>>
>>5368300

Articulation is good, I have no complaints. The armor hinders it a bit, but it's not the type of figure you want to put into flying animu action poses.

>>
>>5372805

The Kylo in the first pic is the SH Figuarts, wearing the robe of the 6" Black series Kylo.

The Kylo in the other two pics is the straight-up 6" Black series.

The Clone Trooper is the 6" Black series, and the droid is the Figuarts.

>>5372359
How'd you go about changing the cloak? The only thing I don't like about the shf is the plastic cloak
>>
>>5373815
Slip the plastic shoulder drape on the BS Kylo over his head then snake the cloak up through his belt (you WILL struggle), then just slip it upward with his hands up - the cloak stretches a little bit, but don't leave it stretched for too long. Then you just put it over the SHF Kylo since he comes apart at the waist. Just be careful and use heat or something when you pull him apart.

You can use heat on the BS Kylo to stretch his belt and make it a little easier putting it through
>>
>>5373929
or just cut off the belt and glue it on the body, making a knight of ren.

yeah. I'd say just use a solid color bg.

Nah, it looks good. It's properly blurred so there's a clear distinction between fg and bg, so it's not clashing.

I mostly do solid color backgrounds but desu I really like patterns like that. Lightbox stuff can get stale quick and it's nice to have something else going on.

I haven't gotten around to it myself, but I think the most common method is a piece of acrylic plastic for the ground and fabric for the background

It's a nice backdrop but I think it's a bit too close. The blur certainly helps but the shallow focus on the figures themselves makes it a little difficult to make out the details.

I also had that lightbox a while back and honestly, you're better off making your own set-up. It ended up being far too small and really makes you have to compact your pictures together. What I did was cut up an old white shirt and taped the cloth over my lamps to act as diffusers which removes the need for the box itself. Afterwards I just got whatever backdrop I was planning to use and propped it up.

By getting rid of the box it gives you much more freedom to take your pictures. It also helps to have bright lightbulbs (I used three 4-5k lumen ones for my lamps)

Pic related was my setup (cluttered because I was just showing the stuff I normally use.

This extra room lets you move the backdrop further back and keeps the focus on the figure rather than drawing your eyes to the patterns behind it. But good lighting is key when taking your pictures.

This actually looks pretty good but that doesn't really look any larger than the light box. It's easier to control all the light in a light box. Also what are you using as the floor in the second picture?

It may not be much larger, but it does help in the end.

It's also a holographic mirror board you should be able to find at Michaels.

Testing out a new lighting set up and trying to get everything dialed in. Using 3 different cameras and finding it a bit finicky to get the settings just right.

I think for sure #3 is a no go (camera phone) not sure about the others.
Can never seem to get those pure color backgrounds without washing out the color or having it over brightened. I don't mind a bit of the gradient (if that's the right term) look however. Just always looking to make my poo poo photos less poo looking.

Any thoughts?

Try a higher ISO, around 400-800. It will be a bit more grainy but you dont always need to use the lowest you can get. This way when you go to edit it you dont have to amp up the contrast and exposure so the figures are visible which will also make the colors less blown out.
