    "Annnnnnd let's just have a look in here and see what we can do to fix this you up, Grimlock!" - something Wheeljack probably said a time or two during creation of these dinobots. I love the OSKO MP-08, I feel like this is the size he should have been to begin with.

    Sure, why not continue with the last of the deluxe Stunticons? Not like it matters. You can like the photo or not, in the end it's all the same. A futile waste of time...

    I like them! Are you posting them on IG or anywhere else?

    These are just stylistic opinions, but here are couple things I would consider if they were my pics:
    • Playing around with bumping up the contrast. To me they're just a little tonally flat and some more contrast could boost the drama and the impact of the lighting. Might need to boost brightness a bit at the same time on some pics.
    • Using a longer depth of field by using a smaller aperture (higher f-stop). I think that makes the subjects look larger (less like toys) which is the aesthetic I go for. I often still want some blurring of foreground or background elements, so it's something to find the right balance for in each shot. I think the depth of field in the robot mode pics is working well, but in the alt more pics I'd like to see Hot Rod's crew more in focus behind him and to see Prime look a little less like a tiny toy.
    • It's a minor thing, but the pics seem a little grainy to me, are you shooting at the lowest ISO setting your camera has? It could also be JPEG compression so hard to tell. Both closing down the aperture and lowering the ISO will require slower shutter speeds, so be sure to use a tripod if you're not already.
    This is also a good thread for photography discussion: Transformers Photography Advice, Discussion, and Appreciation
