Nendoroid Petite Mami and Homura Photography

Hey guys, HAPPY NEW YEAR and for the first day of January 2014, I wanted to share with you some figure photography. Here is Mami Tomoe and Homura Akemi from the Nendoroid Petite Puella Magi Madoka Magica Box Set. I bought these two figures while on vacation and I spent quite a bit of time trying to guess my way into my favourite figures or at least two that weren’t identical. This collection is pretty much sold out now so I’m glad I picked up two when I got the chance.

Here is the full set, photo courtesy of the Good Smile Company online site here.

Here are some New Year’s evening themed photography done with Christmas lights (and sparkles). I just wanted to glam up these magic girls for the holiday. I picked up some decorations on sale after Boxing Day and everything was actually set up at home on top of a box and in front of a white wall so I really focused a lot on setting up in order to blow up the white lighting in order to set a snowy bright wash over the scene

Again, taken with my Sigma 17-70mm on my Nikon D3100 😉

I hope you guys enjoyed this photos. They were just taken yesterday a few hours before the new year so they’re hot off the SD card 😉 I also wish you all a wonderful rest of holidays and safe winter with your family and friends. Cheers to a great new year!

Gundam Seed Winter Ice Photography

Hey guys, so if you’ve known me for a while, you might have caught on to that fact that I’m Canadian. Yeah, that means it snows. A lot. In the winter. But hey that gives me plenty of opportunities to practice lighting in intensely white landscapes or dull grey overcast weather. Today I wanted to share some new figure photography in the winter snow starring Lacus Clyne and Cagalli Yula Athha from Mobile Suit Gundam Seed and Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny. As always, only some of the contrast and brightness is edited and all the photos were taken with my trust (though somewhat basic) D3100 and my favourite Sigma 17-70mm macro lens.

Hope you guys liked this little photo shoot. Got down on my hands and knees in the ice and snow while my dad was shoveling the driveway… the neighbours probably think I’m a weirdo but you do whatcha gotta do for your photos right? More fun winter holiday stuff to come soon! Thanks for reading!

Pumpkin Carving after Halloween… and Midterms

Do you guys have that one friend that’s really into arts and crafts? Who might come from the countryside with a lot of fun traditions? I have one of those friends… and she somehow coerced me into carving a pumpkin. Now, I haven’t carved pumpkins since I was in elementary school so I came into this with limited memory of what to do.

For the record, I went old school and made your classic jack-o-lantern carving. (Also because Cloudy can’t carve…)

My friend Cassie, on the other hand, carved a Christmas themed pumpkin… she’s a little obsessed with counting down to Christmas. But I thought I’d share these photos with you :3
