Gunpla + Light Painting Photography

Gunpla with light painting tricks? Awesome...

I use electrical grinder as the light sources. Fireworks will failed you because it will immediately produced smokes.

G-Exes Jackedge Photos Review

G-Exes Jackedge BMS-004 by Bandai
1/144 HG - AGE - Buy it Here

This unit from Gundam AGE timeline is pretty badass in looking. Yet, G-Exes Jackedge is hard to photograph. Obviously due to its dark color. His rough facial design make the posing also problematic. You need to always give him jackass posing otherwise it will look out of pose.

On the review, this is a simple gunpla unit which great in balance. Articulation is acceptable and can do lot of posing. The torso join between upper body seems a bit loose but not a major problem. Btw, the unit cost in pretty low price, which is good for beginner to try out. Pay attention to the cutting marks, since the color is dark, the mark can be very visible.

I try several poses and these are what selected. Room available light and one single spot light. Enjoy.

side lightning is pretty much giving more details to its badass facial design
