My unannounced and unacknowledged competition with McFarlane's catalog continues unabated and, um, un- ...heeded? Yeah, that'll do.
When I realized that companies might not want photos of their figures surrounded by fog or engulfed in flames, I decided that I should continue focusing on portraits that showed all the fun details of the figure, but with my own style. Well, that's not entirely true. First I curled up into a ball and cried and cried and cried.
Which brings us to Spawn. I shot him exactly like I did with Lilith, with the stove light/reflected flashlight combo. As much as I love the figure, that sickle is a pain to work with. It's just narrow enough that you have to have it facing the camera or else you can't see it, and it's supposed to be metal, but the paint they use is a bit too reflective and it looks like it just might be radioactive.
You know what I just realized? I've become that guy. I can accept the fact that my subject is the larval form of the General of Hell's army, but his thin plastic knife that reflects too much light? UNACCEPTABLE.
I need to go lie down. Maybe read a book. Maybe even leave the house.
