Sis asked me to order “Neon Genesis Evangelion: Asuka Langley Casual Clothes 1/8 Scale PVC Figure” by Kotobukiya. It arrived the other day and I decided to give it to her as her birthday gift/Christmas gift because it isn’t cheap and I’m not that rich >.>
Anyway, I decided to make it my guinea pig in my first photo shoot ^_^
I had three “settings” for the photo shoot. One was on my desk with a white background using a combination of natural and artificial light. The other was in the living room while watching boyfriend and friend play Dead Space. The set-up there was a black background using the fading sunlight (it was nearly sunset) and a lamp.
I really prefer natural light but sometimes the effect of artificial ones is nice too ^_^
This may not look familiar to you if you haven’t read the manga. It’s in chapter 24 when she talks to Shinji about not having a father. The equivalent episode is when the two of them live together to defeat an angel.
Boo. I think this is the only pic I took that came out good that used natural light.

Flickr rotates the image if it’s a large size to make sure other information such as licensing can still be seen. Don’t worry though, it’ll be right side up when saved ^_^

Although I like the figure, I don’t think that it captures the original scene. She just looks bored here wheras she looked to me like she was deep or lost in thought in the manga.
