The good ol’ days – boys and toys and photography

Goldorak aka UFO Grendizer

Goldorak aka UFO Grendizer

Long time no see my friends! Sorry for my absence on the blog, but hey, I am back!

 

Back in the day when I started to get back into photography more and more I was shooting everything that got in front of my Sony DSC-F828. What a wonderful camera it was. A bridge-camera as the kids call it today. Anyway the key part of me wanting to improve more and more was when I started shooting some of the action figures, movie collectibles and toys. The above photo was shot 3 days ago in my studio as I bought the Goldorak aka Goldrake aka UFO Grendizer Figure. I had one already, which is the header of my Facebook timeline, but that is only about 8 cm (3,1 inch.) and this beauty is a bit over 30 cm (12 inch.).

I shot it with two strip lights on each side of the figure and added a silver reflector from the front.

Below you have the humble beginnings of my toy photos and what then led to my troopies365 project. I will do a separate tropes365 post very soon too were I talk about the whole project and the upcoming book, which I am very excited about!

So enjoy and let me know what you think and even more importantly what fueled your photo-lust!
