    I see that you mean good.

    Some tips ( My suggestion no need to take em at heart)

    1. Lighting! Very dark.
    2. Distance from figure
    3. Reverse angle! You want the figure as focus of attention.
    4. Display Area ( When I watch reviews a white surface area help bring out detail)

    I wish ya luck and have fun doing the reviews!


    Cool to see a collector near my area!

    Heya Spark :)  Wonderful advice thank you very much! I'll explain alittle bit about why i do them this way.

    The darkness is a bit of an issue because i live in a basement apartment and unfortunately i don't get any natural light. I try and throw on some lamps and all the pot lights are on but i still don't get a very bright look on camera :( 

    The distance from the figure is mere comfort really. i practiced a bunch of different ways and angles but this was the most comfortable angle in this little space.

    As for the focus on the transformer i thought it would be nice to actually see a physical person holding it and interacting within the review. I find reviews with just hands and a toy alittle cold meaning i don't find it very personal or welcoming. I try and get close ups of the toy by bringing it closer to the camera quite often throughout the review because i do realize i'm alittle far and its alittle dark.

    The white surface idea is something i'm definitely going to look into. i completely agree.

    Mississauga! Gonna be out that way for the action figure expo :)  and one of my favourite pubs is at hurontario near the 403 !! :D
