Again like Rampage, more test shots for a bigger project I'm working on. This guy's bed is not really deep enough and I'm going to have to look for smaller L.E.D. lights. Also perhaps Purple or dark pink "Energon".

Also couldn't get the camera to focus to well here for some reason. I'll try again later.

What type of lighting are you using? I love how the Energon looks. Makes a good effect. Wish I had some of those.
Long live the Decepticons!! I love G1 Starscream!!

Don't tell Starscream, but I'm in love with movieverse Ironhide! ;)

You can get these at Walmart or petco. There just little plastic clear rocky shaped ummmm things that go in a fish bed. They come in all colors and what not. And the LED light just helps greatly.

I just adjusted the shade in the kitchen mostly. And the overhead light dims to different levels. When I do the shot I want outside I will do a few at different times of day for effect. I'm no expert here.

Cool. I took a photography class back in college and I learned some things about lighting. But it's so hard getting the right light inside. My pics I took (which I'm sure you've seen), were done in the living room. How many pics do you take? I'm about to make something that I can use with the figs. Like a light box, just place them and let the light reflect to the figs.

Yeah, I wish I had time for a photo class or two. Perhaps next summer. Could you take a pic of your light box? That would be awesome if you could. Would you use something like that outside too or no?

Here are some pics of the clear plastic rocks I use. There about 2-3 bucks in the pet section of target or walmart or petco. I only bought 2 bags, each containing light and dark colors.

I'll have to pick some of those up so I can use them within my scenes. I'll work on the light box this weekend. I'm pretty much using some cardstock I had left over to turn into a box. I just need to figure how big to make it. I'll post pics on my flickr and I can PM you the link.
