It’s been a while since the last figure photoshoot (Near to 4 months actually ^^;). This time, I managed to get the permission from Shana to grab a couple of shots. She did the tsun-tsun thing at first, but after giving her a nice melon pan and having resisted thirty-four “うるさい！うるさい！うるさい！” for teasing her , we were good and ready to go.
Being a photographer is tough indeed.
\Review of Shana from Max Factory/
First thing to note though, that this figure isn’t mine but instead belongs to a friend. He wanted me to do a photoshoot of Shana.. and I though it would’ve been a great idea given I haven’t had much figures coming in for shoots.
What I do like about this Shana figure is
1.) The long fiery flowing ember hair that pretty much describes her personality.
2.) The overall feel of the figure is there, which pretty much makes this figure outstanding and ready to kick some ass.
3.) Damn, that skirt is short!
Of course, I’m wanting to kick myself for not ordering this figure. It’s totally cutesy!
There are also a couple of things I dislike though
1.) The weight of her hair is heavy, which throws her backwards if you try to place her on a flat surface. I stuck a couple of blu-tacks on the sole of her shoes to keep her up.
2.) Paint seems to catch onto her stomach when you try to take off the skirt (Cast-off ability), which smudges when you try to clean it off :/

EOS 400D with a EF-S 60mm f/ 2.8 Macro USM Lens and a Gitzo tripod. ISO varies from 100 – 400.
The lamp set-up this time was a little different. Managed to get myself a two lamps from Ikea and changed them to daylight bulbs.
Before the shoot, I did a custom WB with a piece of paper as I realized that there was a hint of blue tint when I shot with Auto-WB. No photo for the set-up as I forgot to take one ^^;
Did auto-leveling followed by applying a Deep Red Photo filter with a range of 10%-25%.
