Captain America: Shield Agent
Excited about the release of the movie Captain America: The First Avenger, I came up with a challenge for myself: capture an action shot of Captain America straight out of the camera.
Part of the 3 3/4" "Marvel Universe" line from Hasbro, this Captain America action figure comes with his original shield.
This image is straight out of the camera: no tweaking, no color processing, no cropping, no nothing.
Captain America has also been spotted jumping into action in these locations:
Have you seen this photo somewhere else? Or are you using it yourself? I would love to hear from you! It's always fun to learn where my photos turn up.
This photo was taken in my kitchen using some pretty simple Gear. You might be surprised to discover how low-tech my "photography studio" really is.
This photo was posted to Flickr on 24 July 2011. The last time I checked, it had 13,265 views on Flickr.
The media type of this image is "photo." The original file type was "jpg." The photo's dimensions are 1024 x 681, giving it landscape orientation.
Unless otherwise noted, the image was created by me, JD Hancock.
Captain America is a superhero in comic books published by Marvel Comics. He was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby and first appeared in Captain America Comics #1 (1941). As a frail young man, Steve Rogers was enhanced by an experimental serum into a super soldier to aid the United States armed forces during World War II. His costume is based on the American flag, and he carries an indestructible shield. He was played by Chris Evans in the films Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) and The Avengers (2012).
