Imaginext Toy Photography Fun. (DC Comics Super Friends)

These past two weeks I have been using what bits of free time I have to finally start to open some of my Fisher-Price DC Super Friends toys. I opened them to be able to photograph them all. It hasn't been easy, I actually decided on a pretty poor time to do it. The apartment complex I live it just happened to schedule 3 different inspection visits during the last two weeks. None of which had exact times attached. I don't like looking like a slob, even though I have crap everywhere in my house (I've shared the pics here). I made sure to keep my stuff boxed up and out of the way for the first inspection, and then got it all out and set-up for shooting. Then a 2nd inspection notice came and I had to pack up again. Before I could unpack and get back to work a surprise furnace inspection came about. Normally I would be pretty pissed because they are supposed to give 24 hours notice, but since I had most of my stuff already stored away it was a big deal. Last Friday I was able to get the bulk of the photo shoot done. I may still need to do a few re-shoots on the larger items but most of the 400+ pics I took look pretty good.

 The toys I opened for the shoot are all duplicates in my collection. I decided some time ago that I was going to collect the DC Imaginext toy in package. As some of my favorite DC characters were made into Imaginext form, I picked up extras to just stash away. I knew I'd want to open guys like Red Tornado and Deathstroke to play around with, but wanted a MIP set for my collection as well. Various really good deals came up and I'd grab a few things here and there that I already had. When you can buy the figures at just a couple bucks a piece it's hard to walk away empty handed. When I got to organizing things I found I had quite a bit of doubles and it was about time to get them all opened up.

 It was my first toy photo shoot using some new studio lights I got earlier in the year. There was a bit of testing and tweaking going on. Even looking over the final pics I feel like I could still use a lot more practice with this new set-up. Overall I am really pleased with the outcome of the shoot, and I like the look of the pics I got.

Now if you buy and collect Imaginext you may be asking why I would even bother spending so much time on photographing all these toys. Fisher-Price already puts out tremendously good promotional stock photos of virtually every Imaginext release. I did it partly because it's a  lot of fun, and also because when it comes around to various projects I create I prefer to work with my own original materials where I can. My camera is unfortunately older and I can't get the same quality that the Fisher-Price images have, but I like that I have my own stockpile of pics to use as I see without any issues. Not that I have anything planned for Imaginext just yet, but you never know.
