About this picture

 
Over the last couple of month I wasn’t really able to focus much on taking figure photos. Plus: some projects simply take more time than others and this mini diorama for Strongers Hanairogoromo Miku was certainly one of those projects. I started to work on this set in summer by building the Japanese moon bridge as well as the fake lake and it took me till September when I was finally able to take the picture. Then I submitted it to a local figure photo contest and so the release was pushed back even further.

But now since everything is done I can proudly present you the results of my most lavish build of all time.

Wndrenvy (22 days ago) #27748022Well done on the whole diorama. To be honest, its so impressive that even without the screen background its already awesome. I kinda dislike how distracting it is (the screen) - but thats a good looking diorama I should say!

Thank you! I can fully understand that critique I'm also not 100% satisfied. But yeah, the set is cool. As you can see on my blog I kept it for the shelf.

edhutschek (22 days ago) #27738347Honestly, I don't know. I was just desperate to find a building that resamples the one from the box art and since I can only use pictures under a certain license I ended up with that one. I’m sorry for being so anticlimactic ^^°

Oh wow lol! That's such a neat coincidence, yeah see here i.pinimg.com/73... the red bridge :D

Mekuneko (23 days ago) #27665897Cool shot!
I do feel like the lighting is little strange as it washes out the color and is pretty much only visible on Miku's face. Possible solutions: break the beam to make an impression of leaves or add more lights.
Still thanks for sharing and I really appreciate your setup!


Thank you for your honest words, knowing that they are true. I really should improve on the technical level of taking pictures.
Also I wasn't in the best mood when taking this since my (older) camera broke during the test shoots. The mirror felt off and I had to glue it with some Patafix to have it work again. Well, I guess I know what to by for christmas...

SureFigures (23 days ago) #27695030Creative and inspired. Very happy to see new work from you.
The site looks great too!


Thank you. I would like to do more cool stuff on regular bases but it is damn hard. I envy all those folks who deliver stuff like almost every week.

The_ANS (23 days ago) #27719398This is impressive!
Did you make those trees yourself?


Yes I did. It's pretty easy to do. Just grab some branches and form tiny balls of tissue paper. The only "trick" was, since most tissue paper has some ugly colors, to take white paper and color it by yourself with some copic. Then just glue the balls of paper to the branch.
