I'm Batman!

Today's photo is one of the most unique shots that I have composed to date. The shot is of one of the miniature statues that I have (Batman Black and White, produced in 2005) that I took with my new macro lens. I played around with some lighting from an LED flashlight and finally got the perspective that I wanted. I thought about creating a backdrop to shoot against but decided instead to add in a blurred city perspective as a part of processing.

To me it looks like something almost out of a video game, comic book, or advertisement and I absolutely am THRILLED with the resulting photo. I think the angle and perspective that I shot the miniature figure blends well with the background so it stands out, but not terribly much so.

I am still experimenting with different options and opportunities with the macro lens but I might just have to create a few more shots like this in the near future!
