For a quick picture, I’m pretty happy with how this turned out. I like the overcast grey of the background scenery – it works well with the color scheme of the old Batman Animated Series Mr. Freeze action figure. This is the first time I’ve shot outside this year.
Here’s my second photo of the week for 2018, a closeup of Hasbro’s 6″ scale Maz Kanata figure.
This was a largely unplanned shot – I was just taking pictures of some figures that were hanging around on my desk and happened to like how it came out. I do need to work out a better lighting setup – while some of this photo’s overexposure is a result of the Instagram filter, it is definitely an issue with the original photo.
Last year, I tried to share a new photo on my toy photography Instagram account every day. I managed to keep up with it into April, but it felt more like work than play.
I enjoyed the challenge and I think it helped me improve as a photographer, but there were a lot of days that I didn’t have any good ideas or really feel like taking pictures.
This year, I’m trying for a more modest goal of at least one photo per week. If I share more than one photo per week, I will choose my favorite to post here on Friday.
The picture above features Lego Rey and BB-8 minifigures on their way to a new adventure. I like the theme and composition, but if I re-did the photo, I’d take a bit more time with the background.
