1 Spandex Stories (marvel heroes) on Mon Apr 09, 2018 10:59 am

Just to share my lil collection of masked heroes, I don't keep them exposed as I don't have room for them all, but always happy to unbox them for a shooting or a temporary diorama...

Nice shots. I like the lighting and atmospheric shots of Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Spider-Man and Punisher, cool idea. Has that ever been done in the comics?

Very cool. Since you are at it, you might as well post the cool Avengers party (1 and 2) photos! Smile

Thanks a lot! I try to get different effects using natural daylight or only artificial, I recently bought a set of LED spots that can change color and intensity, very practical!
Spiderman and the Punisher often come across each other in the comics, pretty sure he found his lair a day or another, I have some memories from the comics I read a few years back but nothing exactly like that...

Thanks a lot for the kind words!

Here are some more shots I did this year, trying to recreate the legendary fight scene from civil war...







And here are some very recent shots I did after watching again the Daredevil show on Netflix...

Very cool graphic effects in these photos, too. Some of them look just like movie stills!

Excellent Marvel cast! Those Spiderman & Punisher pics are a blast, and the Punisher's hideout looks great! I keep coming really close to grabbing that Jessica Jones, and she looks especially good in your pics.

But seriously, the Civil Ware and Daredevil/Punisher fight pics are just next level cool. Really kinetic with a ton of atmosphere. You really captured something awesome in all of those.

Newest challenger just arrived, he is insanely cool, I had a great "wow" effect while unboxing, even if it's not the deluxe version the box is well filled with super cool accessories and props, awesome figure!

Damn man, killer pics. Just curious, were the smoke effects done digitally or with actual smoke? If you don't mind me asking, what's your photo set up? What are you shooting on, and what do you usually use for post processing? If you don't mind sharing your tricks that is Wink

That's 'effin excellent.

The posing is some of the best I've seen for that kind of photo and baby Groot on the head stock made me laugh out loud. Even got the feet right in the second photo.

Too cool.

Thanks! If I was cynical about that shot I'd confess the 20$ guitar is as cool as a 250$ figure lmao, I found a couple on ebay with their hard cases, didn't find any use for them until now!

Thank a lot mate! I always add the smoke digitally from now on because most of the time it fills the space so fast I don't get the result I want, the figure often gets totally surrounded in smoke... So I did a session shooting only smoke in front of a black screen,took me a couple hours to get all kinds of moves, but now I have a dozen of good smoke shots to overlay on my pictures!

No secrets about my settings, I'm still a noob at that game lol... I use a nikon D3100 (it's old but still solid) and I use two lenses, a basic 18-105 zoom for all action shots mainly, and a very good 50mm for close ups and portraits.
As I didn't know what I wanted shooting starlord at first I used the zoom, on the first sot it's set around 60mm, with F/5.3 but I should have reduced it to F/7 or 8 even to get the guitar sharper, but that would have needed a longer exposure, here I was set on 1/10 sec, it was night, lighting was very low, and I always keep my ISO sensitivity to 400 to avoid any grain in the black.

Thanks a lot!!! Glad you noticed the posing, even if I play guitar it took me a while to have him look lifelike, I got the idea as back to the future was on tv, I searched for some reference pics of knopfler but found nothing good, so the poses are mainly inspired by marty mc fly lol

Thanks mate! Definitely my favourite hot toys grab recently, he is as cool as DD but with so many extras, chst armor and jetpack, alternative head with light up eyes, guns, walkman, necklaces, scarf, baby groot (with a magnet to sit him on starlord's shoulder...)
I couldn't resist to play riiiight out of the box, he is still playing guitar on my fireplace now...

Good looking bunch! I'm not sure how or where I'll display my figures when I move. I'm not sure about shelves as I don't use stands and some of them aren't terribly stable, only moments ago, Indy fainted and would have been wrecked if he'd been on a shelf.

CHEERS!

Maybe it is time you start using stands. You can always take figures off them for photography. Or use a very very low shelf over a thickly carpeted (or better yet couched) area.

I did like those Mafex stands that Tankgirl used on her Rey, if I can find similar ones on eBay then they might be alright. They're standing on cupboards right now and I might do likewise later, we'll see.....

Just looked on eBay, no loose Mafex and all the other stands are either waist or crotch grabbers and you can't conveniently hide those.

Thanks a lot Dadrab, I hear you no worry, I really like this shot as well, basically cause they are the two marvel heroes from my childhood, much more than any other! Sorry I didn't shoot any behind the scene pictures, it was epic to have these two guys suspended from my kitchen top cabinets lmao

thank you very much Stryker!

Haha Thanks Gubernator! I agree with you, in the end I prefer my comic version of the punisher, more bulky, more dark... The cool acting of jon berntal made another kind of punisher that I also apreciate, but it doesn"t transpire much in photography...

Here are a couple of edits I made during the summer from the Infinity war movie (I loooooooved that movie)
The background art was created in 3D by a phenomenl toy photographer that I met through instagram, his name there is @uncannyfigs , a very nice guy from UK!

Hope you'll like!

Great shots, love the fx! Jon Bernthal is one cool looking person. Does the daredevil figure include an unmasked Murdock head? Would be cool to see an early season 1 costume, with the black shirt etc.

Haha thank you Dadrab! I had the chance to chat and share some images with another toy photographer from England that actually rebuilt the Titan set in 3D, he was kind enough to provide the background!

Ovy wrote:Great shots, love the fx! Jon Bernthal is one cool looking person. Does the daredevil figure include an unmasked Murdock head? Would be cool to see an early season 1 costume, with the black shirt etc.

Thanks Ovy! Agreed that Bernthal is a very cool Punisher, just his face does the job without he needs to speak!

Sadly Daredevil only came with the masked head, a bit like for batman figures it has two "jaw" parts to make alternative mouth expression, but there isn't any Matt Murdock headsculpt on the market yet (except for a high end custom that is wayyyyy out of my price)

Now that you mention Daredevil, here are some shots I made after watching again the show, I was very sad and nostalgic when I heard that the next season is cancelled (not make a rant here but screw you mickey mouse Mad )

Really great photos. I hadn’t heard about Daredevil being cancelled, that sucks... but I guess they figure they’ve run their course. I was a little disappointed in the last season, since he never once wore the official outfit.
