People love to take pictures of toys outside in the grass. Browse action figure photography shots on Instagram or Twitter, and they’ve practically a dime a dozen. I can see why. The natural light. The contrast between the plastic and the plant life. On the surface, it’s a great contrast. It certainly beats shooting them against a blank wall.
This, however, is one of the best “outside” shots I’ve ever seen. For obvious reasons, it makes sense to shoot Poison Ivy among greenery. But Sebastien Glorian did more that just stick her in a bush somewhere. He went the extra mile and mixed up the green with some pink, which adds to the pose the figure is taking. And then you’ve got the sunlight on the hair and skin as the icing on the cake.
It’s a pretty simple shot, when you think about it. Glorian put the figure in the right spot, and let nature do the work. Ivy would be proud.
