Welcome to another photo shoot~ :3
At the moment I’m trying to post my older photo shoots so I can start showing my new stuff, I generally don’t take outdoor shots too often as I need to make free time and also make sure my friend has free time as well as I generally take photos of both our figures, I have gone alone but that’s for another post.
This time around, it’s delicious Mizuho from Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru, a figure from my friend again (I should really give him a name). Fans of the series will know Mizuho’s true… er, gender, but really, I’m already confused on the whole story.
This is the same Royal Exhibition Building from the last photo shoot, as these were taken on the same day. This time we’re taking photos in the flowerbeds surrounding the water fountain just outside the south entrance to the exhibition building… I think =S
By this point in time, I was sweating from the searing ball of fire in the deep-blue sky, apparently the rash I had was because of my excessive sweating -_-;
Oh the pains I go through for such photography~ The last two photos however were taken at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, in the southern section… I think =S There was a ring of water with a subterranean centre in which there was a garden, but since we’re in a bit of a situation in regards to water reserves, the pool was fairly… dirty.
Trusty White Paper Use! But this time I kinda feel that it was used a lil too close as most of the photos tend to have this very obvious white shine on the figure, which is somewhat hard to see on a tiny LCD screen =/
Pretty, is what I can say. Mizuho looks quite appealing as a figure to her, I mean his anime/game counterpart. The details are in the right spots, the dress is flowing from a gust of air and the hair is spread gracefully, the creases are in the appropriate places. Seamlines are carefully hidden away (as I can’t even recall any obvious ones). A good quality sculpt by Alter, like they ever have a bad one.
The day was in general, hot. The photos came out a lil too yellow for my liking, you can see the horrid photos which I had to photoshop extensively in the Le Morte d’Arthur post. Mizuho came out a lil better so not too much ‘shopping was needed, but would of been better if I could eliminate heavy image manipulation.
Although it may look bland or boring for some, others may find the simple elegance and the innocent pose to be very appealing, like my friend :3
Just look at her, I mean his innocence!
Sorry about the lack of angles, I need to focus on getting proper “review” shots next time I’m at a photo shoot. I tend to get carried away snapping away at the figure and background instead of getting all around shots for review purposes. ^^;
