Hello, everyone!

My name is Alan Ulloa *as stated in my watermarks, lol* and I'm a photographer by trade! I started collecting figures when one of my besties bought me the Maya Natsume, Beatmania IIDX Celica, and Rise Kujikawa from Persona 4 figures. Since then, I've been looking at figures for creative ideas and just overall awesomeness.

Also, about the watermark business... I'm sorry but that's just how I do things now. I've had work stolen from me previously and it was NOT a fun kerfuffle. I won, of course, but it was completely needless and retarded. So... I'm sorry.

Also! If anyone wants tips on lighting and whatnot, I would be more than happy to share my knowledge! Just drop a message and I'll reply no problem! :D



Happy Birthday!

Well, it's a VN by Nitro+ But I do think they made it into a comic. I have to admit that I've never played it. I don't understand Japanese. I want to though! I just love Sansei's design sooooooooo much!

JiffySmackums4 vuotta sitten#13458035NO way, thank you for accepting! I love your photos and I hope to see more of it!! :D I would offer my technical support, but I don't think you need it. Haha.

Oh my gosh! Thank you so much! Hearing that come from a professional photographer gives me a huge confidence boost :). I'm self taught and I'm learning how my camera works by just fooling around with it. My figures are great models ( ^ω^ )

I'll probably invest in some LED lights. If I can afford to buy books, video games, statues, and cat food, I'm sure I can buy one lol

Any specific models? I know you mentioned a couple.

Well, I also use my camera's/phone's flash. Like I said, this tends to wash out the subject and makes them look like they're in a black hole. I've tried using my torch and spread out the light to its fullest. Then I try to it up somewhere, making it a weird spotlight/showlight.

No Lie, I even used my GBA SP, and PS Vita with max brightness to create light around a figure lol My mom walked in while I was posing Saber 2.0 and she was like, "What even is this?!"

I usually take my pictures at night time due to my schedule. What are good lighting methods to use so my figures aren't saturated in light and don't contrast with the darkness. No small LED lights. I improvise with my laptop and TV glare. Guerilla, I know.

Also, I lent my Canon so I'm stuck with my Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
