Lightfield!

Light field photography is an interesting concept: Instead of capturing an image created by the main lens on the sensor directly, the image created by the main lens at some point – in front of or behind the sensor – is again focused by an array of micro-lenses of extremely short focal length onto the…

Winged beauty

Even before Tenshi arrived two weeks ago, I had been having, in my mind, this image of Tenshi walking her dog. It took me a while, however, to get an photo going. The first thing that happened was me breaking her wing not even 5 minutes into unboxing :(. Tenshi has big, translucent, majestic wings…

Shinobu

Last photo before leaving Vietnam. Visited the countryside today, and was reminded how easier it is to get good-looking wild flowers in here than in California. Shinobu evokes a reassuring feeling, and in turn, calm and peace. Then loneliness comes after. This figure perfectly captured all that. The scale figure with donuts is cute and…

Nadeko

I suddenly had an hour of free time, and the sunset looked good, so I took Nadeko with me to the beach. Having taken sunset photos before, I know that I only have seconds to set up and take the shot. Yet despite preparing the pose beforehand, I still don’t have enough time to get the…

Yuno & a camera phone

Whew, that was a lot to be done for new year celebration. Now that it’s over, I can resume my #figurefridaychallenge, and with the current challenge being cameraphones, I now have infinitely more #instagram than ever before! For still subjects, the only disadvantages of a cellphone camera are no aperture/DoF control, and generally lower resolution (lens…

Black & White

BRS is still one of my favorite games, despite the fact that I already finished “BRS Maniac” achievement, twice, on 2 different PSPs. Don’t let the trailer and box art fool you: the game is actually very cute. BRS is strong but hot-headed; while WRS is more calm and composed, but lacks passion. I wanted…

I have a doll

I have been telling people that I play with figurines, not dolls. Well, that’s no longer true. I officially stepped up into the dolls’ territory now. No DollfieDream (yet), I don’t have that kind of money, but this little-know PureNeemo is still spectacular. Things I immediately noticed: Details, details, details! Lots more details than PVC…

Fall

This week’s #figurefridaychallenge is about “Progression”, whatever that means. So I was looking at the progression of seasons for the challenge, then it hit me, that I had the personification of Autumn right here. Also, trying out my brand new Sony a6000. Kit lens 16-50mm @50mm, ISO 1600, f/5.6 1/80s handheld. Color, details, contrast, sharpness. Any complaint? None…

Illya

This $25 figure has always felt special for some reason. Sure her pose is only okay; the seams are visible everywhere; and her parts are not the most durable: her hand is already losing grip on the wand after half a year; and the way she looks downward makes it pretty hard to photograph her. And she’s…

Twintails

I love twintails. Twintails are awesome. They symbolize girls who are cute but don’t know about it; who are strong-willed but still yearn for support; who don’t want their feelings openly expressed. In other words, those who are type A tsundere. I took this photo while trying to get a profile shot of Sora. I…

Coronado with Kirino

Peace. Loneliness. Aspiration. Ambition. The San Diego skyline evokes many different types of emotion when people see it. Today, I took Kirino to Coronado island for the first time. When she gazed at those lights that outshine that of the stars, what was it that our little darling was pondering?

Figure Friday challenge: Black

I am lazy. Anyone who know me for more than a day knows that. Without the #figurefridaychallenge, I wouldn’t have picked up my camera to take any photo. With a fresh, not-so-easy-but-still-open-enough topic every week, it had reignited my passion for figure photography. This week’s challenge was about black, which is a rather vague topic. Some people…

Kuroneko’s straw hat

I always liked this version of Kuroneko’s (Shironeko’s?) straw hat. A lot of details, striking but realistic color, nicely placed ribbon. The figure itself is good, too, with Kuroneko’s signature look, contrasting with her translucent dress revealing the striped bikini underneath; sexy. The thing is I don’t like beach queen figures. Maybe because they don’t reflect how…
