Little League Bat ... Man

Little League Bat ... Man

Posted to Flickr on 06 April 2015.

Close-up of a one-inch tall Zerboz Batman figure leaping over the baseball bat I received from my parents on my third birthday.

Photo submitted to the Flickr group Macro Mondays for the “Baseball” theme.


The idea for this photo came from the Flickr group Macro Mondays.


The base of the scene is an elevated black shelf that I often use for my photography. The backdrop is a sheet of scrapbooking paper. The bat is held in place by snack-sized potato chip containers. Batman is lifted up by a small Gorillapod.


Above the scene a large circular diffuser (not shown) softens the room’s ambient light.


My initial shots were, in hindsight, too far away for Macro Mondays. I also decided to use taller grass in the background.

Selected imagery background information.


Batman is a superhero appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. He was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger and first appeared in Detective Comics #27 (1939). The rich industrial, playboy, and philanthropist Bruce Wayne, having watched his parents murdered as a child, swore to protect Gotham City from criminals by honing his physical and mental skills to the peak of human perfection. The Dark Knight’s costume varies but typically includes a cowl with bat-like ears, a scalloped cape, a utility belt, and a stylized bat emblem on the chest. He is often depicted as part of the Justice League superhero team along with Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, and others. The character was played by Adam West in the television series Batman (1966), voiced by Kevin Conroy in Batman: The Animated Series (1992), and played by Christian Bale in a series of films directed by Christopher Nolan starting with Batman Begins (2005).
