And here it is, my latest photo shoot, 12th April 2007, in the sunny afternoon under the deep-blue sky. I was in the photographer’s mood after taking the photos of Black Saber and Caren. This is one of my friend’s figures, the same friend who I’ve been dragging along in previous photo shoots, Meg from Bakuretsu Tenshi by Alter.
This trip had my friend and I carrying 3 figures, Meg, Ymir (Queen’s Blade) and also Rina Rindou (Pastel Chime). So, here’s Meg!
NOTE: Due to the request of shrine.org.au I have had to take off some (most) images from this post… Sorry for those who would like to see the photos, but there’s not much I can do at this point in time.
Federation Square…uugh. So many people, I had to pick a spot that wasn’t taken up by someone’s butt. The area I chose had some greenery and such, so I gave it a shot. I prolly should of tried other places but it was pretty damn busy =/ We still had stares and such tho, from Melbournians and tourists alike.
The Shrine of Remembrance was quieter, which was good I guess. We snapped a few photos on the stair sides out front and also on TOP of the Shrine :3
It was a pretty nice view on top of the Shrine, there was a kid and his father up there who were watching us take photos… prolly thinking what on earth are we doing taking photos of a little plastic woman with a HUGE GUN. Oh, we also attended the simulated Remembrance Day event in which sunlight passes over the Stone of Remembrance and the word “love” on it.
The choices of the two places can be explained, Federation Square had that disjointed, deconstruction style that seems to fit in with Meg, however my photos don’t do justice with it =/ The Shrine of Remembrance was a choice that seemed like it could work and I think it somewhat does… I think. The whole military background and the reasons to why the Shrine was built seemed li-….wait, that doesn’t fit Meg at all! @_@
Clean and simple, used some white paper for some of the shots, but overall hardly anything else. Not much to add really ^^;
Chick with a HUGE gun, who DOESN’T like that. Meg is the Yoko before Yoko was around. Alter has done a nice job with this figure, delivering a nice pose with a good paint job. Sculpt wise, great, although some angles do make her face looks awkward, it is still a nice figure. There isn’t really any noticeable flaws that I can think of in terms of sculpt. Painting is done pretty well too.
A lil better than morning work of Black Saber and Caren Hortensia in terms of angles and such, I attribute it to the fact that it was not early morning when I’m all dazed. The clear blue sky was a good bonus considering the overcast sky in the morning. I’m still a lil disappointed in the Federation Square photos as it lacked a bit of creativity with the background.
Lots more photos for this figure, I took a considerable amount of photos so there was plenty to chose from :3
Hope these are better in terms of photography from the previous, but who knows, I’m not a professional photographer :P
