Cool shots John! I like the idea of contextual shots, the more elements the better. If I might offer a piece of technical advice, I'd like to see more of the elements in focus in the photos such as that Padme one, you might consider stopping down your aperture to something like an f.11 or 16 (and of course adjust to a slower speed or a higher ISO to compensate for less light getting into the smaller aperture), but if you're going for more bokeh (the intentional out-of-focus effect where the background blurs) then of course you're right on target.I've been photographing figures from this wave for long-overdue reviews. I'm still getting used to the new camera, and the setup is pretty simple, but I hope the photos will give a good idea of the figures and show how they fit in the collection. I prefer to set my figures up in dioramas, and since I have just about everything, I will be leaning away from clinical neutral poses and more towards showcasing what the figure can do and recreating scenes from the films and EU. Here are some raw shots for Padmé and Anakin.
