Asakura Ryoko 1/8 Scale Figure (Max Factory)

Just got another Max Factory’s “Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu” figure series to add to my collection ^^;
This time is “Asakura Ryoko 1/8 Scale Figure”. Got this from KKnM for S$67, and lucky me, I think this is the last of the stock ^^


The figure comes with an additional “Hand” holding a knife/dagger.

As usual, another excellent quality figure from Max Factory ^^ Took lots of shots. This time tried to do with different background (I really need to learn to take better shots XD~)

Planning to get the rest of the Max Factory figures, and I know it won’t be easy ^^;

I think I like this background better than the usual “Curtain” shots :p I’ll probably need to get more lights for better picture.

EDIT: Added 2 new “test” pics for my new photo taking set up below ^^;

I think it looks much better now ^^, although I do still need to improve the lightening to bring out the colours more =/

    yes i like this background better as well. it’s recommended to use a simple backgrund to take photographs of figures cos if the backgrounds is too complicated it will make the viewer lose focus.

  2. wcloudxkumo Says:

    Yeah, definitely ^^ Gonna try and improve my photo-taking skills :p

    I’ve added 2 new “test” shots to test my new photo setting at bottom page ^^

    the last 2 test shots are even better. great work! at least now there isn’t any harsh shadows directly behind the figure.

    doing away with harsh shadows is quite a difficult thing to master in figure photography. lightning is very important. for me i usually take photos of figures in the moning/afternoon under natural sunlight near a window. ^^;

    Nice work with the shots. can you tell me how you minimised the dark shadows for the nose? Many pics i take seem to have weird colour near the nose because of the light i think.

    Welcome ( ^ _ ^ )

    Thx ^^;

    One way to minimize shadow (in any way/part) is to have a reflector or a secondary light, on the opposite side. You can check out my photoshoot set up for easier explanation ^^;

    Ooh, yeah, she does look high quality. Very nice~ Especially her hair, and the pain they used on the hair for the lighting. ^_^
    Yep, I also think this background is better than the “curtain” background, because your curtain got a lot of patterns. X3
