To the uninitiated, action figure photography may seem like child’s play. Just grab a camera (or smartphone), position the action figure in an interesting pose, and take the shot. It’s that simple. Right?
While anyone can indulge in some amateur toy photography in their spare time, it takes a tremendous amount of skill, creativity, and, yes, perhaps even some photo editing software to compose shots that will draw the viewers’ attention to the subjects depicted and, more importantly, make them forget that they’re actually just looking at a bunch of toys.
Action figure photographers may spend countless hours experimenting with lighting, aperture settings, filters, and equipment in order to capture the right mood and atmosphere in their shots. And, boy, can it yield some amazing results.
