Some days ago, I asked my friend, Aditya Rakhman, to visit my studio (yeah! studio!…sounds pro, haha :P). He happens to be a photographer who shares a common interest with me, toys :D! After some hour of photo-session using his Canon EOS 500D (if I’m not mistaken), here’s some of his shot:
I always think that photography could not be separated from my hobby. Yup, photography is not ‘the hobby’, but it gives a great support on how I do scale modeling and collecting toys. I’ve seen many examples of a good modified kit, but unfortunately, failed to meet the test of good publicity since the photos are poorly executed. I really hope that it won’t happen to any of the kits I build. I’ve put great efforts on building my kits, so to take a good photos of them is kinda like how I awarded myself.
I can’t pull this one out with my Fujifilm FinePix E510. Those DSLRs could really make the difference huh?
Photography is not only about what gear that you possessed. An idiot who holds a very expensive camera would still produce a bad picture, because the camera don’t take pictures by itself. The person’s experience, knowledge, and passion (in this case for toys) is somehow very important in the outcome.
A good quality photos would be better on exploiting the flaws of your build TT…more motivation to build a flawless one then 😛
I might invite him for some of my next finished project 😀
I’ve crop his photos into a banner-size pictures and use it for my ‘Entry List‘ page.
I must say that I’m very sattisfied with his shot! Nice angle, and lighting 😀
