Some entertaining uses of housewares for various photography effects. Figure photography even gets a brief nod in the video!

Here's a really nifty how-to video on how to make your own miniature cherry trees for doing a photo shoot with your favorite figures (complete with cute Nendoroid pics):

Tsunami3k (9 months ago) #2036463Nothing wrong with that; it certainly goes with the pink theme of her dress. The setting is also quite nice.
Thank you :3

jen_tsukase (9 months ago) #2036028I just edited the color a bit and liked it. xD Mmhh.. reading the description it would maybe fit a "Dutch angle" ... but that is unintentional o-o

Tsunami3k (9 months ago) #2035866Nice composition but it's got a pretty strong pink cast to it. Was that your intent? I'll defer to anyone with more experience employing them but is this framed as what's often called a "Dutch angle"?

Tsunami3k (10 months ago) #1995553This is a neat idea! I've long debated doing a figure photo book of my own as sort of a vanity project; I've even put a few together but always wanted to squeeze in "just one more shoot". I have to admit that it would be pretty cool to see a photo I contributed being included among a collection of other figure fans' photos.
Any decision yet on roughly how big the book will be?


It is a Landscape A4 size Hardcover with more than 70 pages

hellkiller1234 (10 months ago) #1991526Hi, we are from Sakura doujin we have this new upcoming project “Snap_Fig" that will be released in Mid 2014. We are creating a photobook about figurine, more specifically anime figurine as a photography and anime enthusiast. Unlike other figurine photobook, what’s so special about this is that it goes a little more details than what you see in the picture.
Submit one of your best figurine photos to us and if it is featured on our photobook, you will get the photobook for free!!

This sounds interesting! If you haven't already, you should make a blog about it so more people will know.
