A big shout out to Sara from Optimistic Penguin for giving such generous prizes for her anniversary contest!! I got it last week and I had tons of fun playing around the class room sets A and B for my nendoroids! Nendo school of rock is officially now in session!
Hope you guys enjoyed this photoshoot of the Nendoroid music class room set A and B! Comes with tons of accessories and endless play time! Just to share some of my own thoughts which you don’t often read about in the Toy Room ^^. The tedious part for toy photography always comes in the set up. I had to be sure I am very careful when placing the pieces. Any slight movement of the set will result in a few pieces toppling over!!! Though it can be frustrating at times, when I am finally able to take those shots and process them, the time is really worth it. A simple shot can take like 10mins to set up, not even including the time when you test out all the angles and such. For any scene I usually take like 5 to 7 different shots and then choose just one. To reduce the time, I don’t use a tripod cos i find it restricts the angles in which I can take and these where taken in the evening when the light is just nice and still not too dark! (less post processing for the white balance and colors!)
As my nendoroid collection grew, the parts simply become too much to handle. So I found these very nice boxes off the shelves of Giant superstore and they make excellent stores for your excess parts and faces. And it helps in making it easier to access all the different hands, parts and accessories! A plethora of choices when it comes to taking a certain scene!
Till the next post and have a great week ahead!!
