    Miaeka (8 kuukautta sitten) #38212575Wow. Thank you for taking the time to write this! I'm thinking about it now, and you're right- people are at the beach to have fun- and I hardly think they'd negatively judge what I'm doing.
    I have bubble wrap from past orders just hanging around, so I might use that for transport! That being said, the figure I'm bringing is only a prize, might bring a 1/12 scale as well but idk. (Both are Miku lol)
    I've had a look at your album, and you have some really pretty photos! You are very talented, so I'll be sure to take the advice you gave me to heart.
    I'm kind of excited now, lol.
    Thank you again!


    You're very welcome, and thank you for takin a look at my album! Have a good time at the beach!!

    Eren3950 (8 kuukautta sitten) #38209572I took my Link amiibo to the beach. I just wanted to take a cute pic of him. It was packed too, but I think people don't care much because they're focused on having fun. I'm a noob too.

    I've done shoots outside and traveled with boxless figures a couple of times before, so here's my advice:

    1) Deconstruct the figure as much as you can
    If your figure comes with optional parts--maybe they're holding something like a weapon or an accessory--and you can remove those parts at will, by all means do so. This will prevent breakage and paint transfers. If the base is detachable, remove the figure from the base. When traveling long distances with Nendoroids, I often detach the head and body to protect the neck peg.

    2) Wrap figures and parts securely in some kind of padding.
    When traveling with scales in the past, I've wrapped them up in soft t-shirts before slipping them into my bag. Just one shirt is fine! Take extra care to pad areas that might be prone to breaking, like long hair or any limbs sticking out. Also, wrap any accessories in some kind of cloth or tissue, and make sure to put them in a secure pocket of your bag. With Nendoroids or figmas, I often just slip them into small drawstring pouches to protect them from scuffs. Clean socks work too! I'll also bring their spare parts and bases along in a small ziploc bag.

    3) If the sun's too bright, try adjusting your camera's brightness.
    At the beach especially, the light can get so bright that your figures' features get washed out. If that happens, I try to adjust the brightness settings on my camera to see if I can't offset the sunlight.

    You probably won't be able to drag a whole light studio out into the real world, so try to work with the natural light you have. Experiment with different angles/positioning relative to the sun to see which ones are most flattering for your figure. I've found that shooting pics in shaded areas, or in the evening just after sunset, produces more satisfactory results than hard sunlight--but that's my personal taste haha

    4) Don't worry about the people judging you!
    I've done many an outdoor shoot in public places, and in my experience, most people will think what you're doing is fun or neat rather than weird. I've had a lot of people notice me taking figure pictures and smile in understanding or bemusement. Some people might even come up to ask what you're doing, and if they do, just play it cool! Say you're taking still life pictures, and show them what you've got so far.

    And I think that's all the advice I've got! Let me know if you have any more questions or need me to clarify anything, haha :3
