Throughout December we’ll be showcasing work from across the community in a retrospective project dubbed “My Top 3 2018”.
Its the turn of Exclu debutant Andrew Owens (@goodguytoys) next in our series sharing their personal favourites from 2018 along with a few reason behind why he picked them. Its over to Andrew to introduce his selection :
I wanted to share3 images I’m really proud of as I recently upgraded to my first DSLR (Nikon D3500) and shifted my collection and photography to focus on sixth scale figures. I really started to try and experiment with these this past month and, while they may not be totally groundbreaking, I’m happy with some of the progress I’ve made!
First off, I kind of went Defenders crazy this month. I picked up both HT Daredevil and SooSoo Toys Iron “Warrior”. The detail is absolutely stunning on Daredevil, and I spent a bit of time one day shooting him outdoors by a local church. Though this unfortunately resulted in minor damage to one of his horns, I was able to take a few shots that I was happy with.
Things really took off when Iron Fist came in. The articulation and my desire to experiment with lighting effects to represent his fist pushed me to create some really fun shots. I even tried going full Defenders and experimented with green and red lights to represent both Iron Fist and Daredevil, much like the show did.
A huge thank you to Andrew for sharing his 2018 favourite pieces and if you want to get involved and share your Top 3 then all you need to do is email jack@Exclucollective.com with your 3 creations (toy shots, customs or dios) along with your name and a few paragraphs explaining your choices.
