Additional Notes

I wanted to take an 8" action figure and make it look larger than life.

I set this up on my kitchen table. I used a grey t-shirt as a backdrop. The key light is a speedlite shooting through a 12"x16" softbox on camera left. The kicker is another speedlite with a 1/4" grid in the rear and camera right. A piece of black foil folded into a v-shape was used as a black bounce on camera right.

I guess I could have gone into Photoshop to illuminate the chest/palms/eyes, but I wanted to post this image straight out of camera to show what can be accomplished with simple gear and some ingenuity.
