Some people like to go off-roading. Emile likes to kick it up an notch.
Mega Bloks produced this UNSC Spartan Emile figure and his All-Terrain Mongoose from the Halo video game series.
This photo was inspired by the photography of Symon-006.
Photo seen in Flickr Explore.
Toy photographer Symon-006 was nice enough to mention me to the friendly people at Mega Bloks, and they asked me if I would be interested in photographing some of their toys. And of course I agreed!
The overall setup was straightforward. The vehicle is suspended with invisible thread under the large circular diffuser that softens the ambient light in the room. The backdrop is a sheet of scrapbooking paper with a cloud print on it.
Posing the figure was a bit of a challenge. Friction and gravity were on my side, and his hand had just a tight enough grip on the handlebars that once I had him positioned, he didn’t move much.
I played around with the clouds a bit. Ultimately, I liked having more blue under the vehicle.
