Update: review’s up
Unfortunately, no Halloween post from me as I was doing something more important (watching basketball)… but Alter’s new Asuka figure came in and I wanted to get a photo shoot done. I really like her world-weary pissed off look as it fits her character in Evangelion 3.33 well. And hey, shiny red buttocks.
Pretty simple overall, with yet another baking pan 🙂
I went with a cross-lit setup with the key being an umbrella (gridded flash in some shots) and a softbox for the rim. If you want to get that nice wrap-around on a rim, you need to go really big. That lesson took me entirely too long to learn, so here you go. The camera this time is a rental, which performed well but is hilariously dwarfed by my flash unit.
(Oh yeah, if you’ve read my Twitter lately you’re probably thinking I’ve become a shill for Fujifilm. This is not the case.)
