Canary and Arrow in Action

Shooting an action scene is a challenging task to any toy photographer. I consider the pose, perspective and of course lighting when doing an action scene.

But, it's always a blast to see your action figures in action. :)

Lower the opacity (approx 20-30% tops) when near the face/body of the figure. For the rest, you can increase it since it will be totally unnoticeable. Here's a sample below:
