Last year, I did a photo session with Deadpool action figure and 1:12 scale AUTOart Vespa, which attracted lot of good comments both in social media and Instagram… Since then I been playing with multiple action figure (even have a separate blog for them) and doing toy photography every now and then. I wanted to do something special with one of my newest acquisition, Deadpool in Boxer shorts and because I like my 1:12 diecast bikes I picked a Ducati to add drama to the session.
It is not any Ducati but my favorite Ducati so far by Maisto, the Ducati Streetfighter S(read my full review here) in 1:12 inc red. This Ducati is supremely detailed and the scaling is also accurate so this shoot be fun. I am sure fun quotient should be all time high because our very own fun maker Deadpool is here.
The theme for this toy photography session is Deadpool upgrading his ride, so we will have some intro scenes, followed by a test ride and proceedings then. Because it is Deadpool, I tried my best to bring out the theme so try not to laugh.
Did I bring out the point that this Deadpool is not fully dressed up like the older one I shared? Yeah this Deadpool action figure is a part of Marvel Legends series, which is know for exceptional articulation and some fine details, which all helped me get some naughty pose.
I kind of dint feel the scaling difference till I put this figure on top of the bike to get that riding pose! The scaling issue could be either parties but the difference is evident in this riding shot. And here you can see the pose is almost perfect and the riding stance/posture is sweet.
I used my Nikon D3100 (yeah I know, I need to upgrade) with Nikor 35mm Prime Lens for this entire shoot primarily because of the bokeh effect that this combo gives! And I kind of like the output, I used the bokeh effect to a minimal and hope you like it too.
The last shot was by far my best I have to say… Why because it took multiple attempts and I was not happy even after some 10 shots… Finally this shot shows the relaxed feel and works as a conclusion piece, because of the blurred out Ducati in the background. This series was actually done for my Action Figure site(check this out if curious) but later saw a potential here, so posted too, but the photos are all unique. I had loads of fun during this session, hoping to hear from you with suggestions/comments for my upcoming sessions. Till next time… Ciao.
