On My Command

Posted on Thu 24th Nov, 2005, 9:36pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 2.5 sec, Aperture: f/8,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: None,
Lens: Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM, Focal length: 100mm,
Captured: 24th November 2005, 9:00pm,

Those of you who collect toys might recognise this as one of James Jarvis' figures. To the rest of you, who don't recognise it, fear my zombie hordes, ready to attack whenever I give the order.

I did this shot for two reasons. One was because my new macro lens turned up today (thank you kindly Mr Proctor). The other reason was because the only other picture I had was of a camo rubber duck among some cacti. Sounds like a winner but trust me, it's crap.

I quite like this shot, despite it taking ages to get the positioning of my head right, but there's still something a bit lacking. It doesn't look as action-y as I wanted. Not sure why.

I love it and I want one, I wouldn't mind one of those toys in the background too, is that fake fur?

great shot, I know what you mean about needingto be more "action-y", if the zombie was at a slight angle towards you it might have given the impression of it walkin toward camera.

Good point. You may be right about that.

Nice play with DOF.

Great stuff. My son's got a figure similar to this - a heavy metal guy called Terry I think. Good capture and effective use of a shallow depth of field.
