平沢 唯 ~ Hirasawa Yui
Posted by meronpan on May 2, 2010
With the second season currently airing I would guess she’s pretty hard to find anywhere now ^^;
Tried something different today… was originally planning to shoot on white since a lighter color seemed to go with her personality better… but ended shooting with no background.
Or rather, just whatever I happened to place her in front of ^^; Recognize the anime I had on?
How about now? ^^
Anyhow yeah, above is still without the usual backdrop… it’s just that exposing for my main light, the ambient light quickly drops out, blackening the background.
A nice cheerful expression, which, though cute on mio, is much more in character for yui ^^
I think ‘cuz of the way she’s facing her face seems a bit flat from some angles?
Like above ^^; So yeah, I would recommend finding display space for her that’s eye-level or below.
Guitar is nicely done, enjoy some macro shots~
I need to remember to really narrow up the aperture for these shots… dof becomes insanely shallow…
Was having a bit of trouble with glare on her eyes, even with my circular polarizer ^^;
And i must say it’s a bitch trying to adjust the thing when your lens hood is like 3 inches deep orz
Getting down to some lower angle shots…
I think it’s been a long time since I’ve had an alter figure that stood on both legs ^^;
and a little more on her expression… personally seems a little freaky from some angles…
Well, perhaps mostly just in the sort of generic moe below ^^;
yui’s pick hand
and of course had to bring mio in the mix ^^
Shooting groups you definitely get an appreciation for depth of field. Had to make sure they were exactly lined up to have both faces in focus at f/3.2 ^^;
Could’ve stopped down of course but wanted to keep the background as diffuse as possible.
Ah, yui’s taken the spotlight again :P
All in all, pretty much what I expected from this release. Pairs nicely with mio capturing her energetic, care-free nature. Expression might look a little off from some angles… take care where you place her :P Not feeling particularly chatty today so hopefully the pics spoke for themselves ^^;
Now the question is whether Alter will release mugi & ritsu… and whether i’ll succumb to set completion ^^;;
stop by foo-bar-baz for the usual excellence~
