Gashapon HMS VIII
This really isn’t a serious photoshoot review of Gundam gashapons since me and my friend Omar did this shoot in just 10-15 minutes!
Initially, I asked the Security Guard on duty at our office/mall building (yes, our office building is also a shopping mall. LOL) if we can take pictures of the office building diorama on display at their office lobby. He said yes, but after 10-15 minutes of taking pics, the other Security personnel on duty was already asking us to leave. I’m guessing he’ll be in deep sh*t if his superiors find us taking pics of a replica of the office/mall building. Security matters, I guess.
Anyway, my friend was using a 50mm f/1.4 prime lens which is really awesome for low-light photography, whereas, I used an 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 telephoto lens. You can cleary distinguish from the pics which shots was his and which are mine since I have to bump up the ISO a bit to compensate for the indoor lighting.
Take note that we can’t use any other types of lighting since this is Ninja-mode photography at its best! ahahahaha!
I did try to use my Speedlight but since we were shooting macro, the flash was just too bright and just ruined the photo.
Overall, I think it was a good photoshoot but it could’ve been better if I had the time AND the permission to setup some lights. =p
