zinkymomo replied to your photoset: Okay, okay, here’s a post for the Zoids tag! More…
I really, really like the first and last ones. Bottom center too, but being able to see the computer annoys me a bit
I like the computer in some of the shots (reflections!), but I did worry about it showing some too. And it does take away from the cool particle one’s…particleness. Recropped it, better :D?
Okay, okay, here’s a post for the Zoids tag! More glowy Sabre-in-front-of-computer, now with slightly more camera knowledge. They’re not exactly glorious macro wonder, but they’re at an ISO where my old camera would have made pretty fuzzy mess. This makes me happy.
I’m never sure if I’m making things better or worse by playing around with levels/filters, though. Are these good, good cheesy, bad cheesy?
Playing around with a PowerShot S110, Sabre, and ProjectM visualizations as backdrop. (The visualization is Aderrasi - What cannot be, which is far cooler in motion and not so overexposed for the sake of a Zoid.)
I’m sure I can do much better than this once I figure out what goes where in all the settings and how to better control the touch focus (woah is that useful, every camera should have it), but finally, a decent sensor and image stabilization. It weirds me out a little this is a camera the size of my mp3 player, even if my mp3 player is a metal brick from 2006.
I need to get a screen protector before it becomes totally coated in finger gunk (or worse, scratches).

It was foggy this morning, so I took this shot out the window. With my shaky hands I have a lot less trouble using the tablet camera, even if its photos are lower resolution.
I have once again failed to get a picture of it (unless I can nab one on the way to the train tomorrow), but there’s a pub near here with the Big Dipper on its sign. This amuses me more than it probably should.
I was going through what few photos I got at Kew (I’m Captain Shakyhands lately, so I mostly didn’t bother and just looked at stuff), and I have one sequence that goes:
Multiple blurry photos of plant
My SO taking pictures of plant in the background, plant still blurry
Picture of my SO taking picture of plant, plant is in focus (along with them) but tiny.
Have a few of the less fail ones. The peacock is from finding a couple of them up a tree—of course, they were grooming, so most of the in focus pictures I got were of them with their heads hidden. Birds, I swear. More cooperative: the pictured pigeon (of course) and slightly skeptical gull.
I am also fond of the flier I found on a tree. It’s probably hard to see at Tumblr size, but the tearoff bits are (of course) lyrics to the song!

And this is what ate my weekend, along with Hatoful Boyfriend. I built at night, so no good natural color shots yet!
These are all the Dragon Momoko and STK bootleg recolors I know of, assuming chrome feet on the original’s colors counts as a recolor. Fingers crossed Kotobukiya plays nice with the proxy service I’m trying to preorder the official chrome ones with. So many tiny kitties @_@. They’re about the size of a G4 My Little Pony, too, so they’re not very space-eating.

I’m recompressing some older photos and going through some I never had on-site in the hopes I can actually get a review of something finished for once. My Zoids site is very unupdated!
König Wolf is a pain to draw, but I love its lines and overall look.

Me messing around with Camera+ on my mom’s iPhone. I swear I took some proper pics of this thing too, but have this for now!

Hey, look what I finally finished. And need light and charged camera batteries to get proper pics of. I’ve had it since right after it was released, took me long enough!
Aside from the same (but thankfully more gluable other than the shoulder armor that’s on ball joints that NEVER STAY IN) “parts fall off if you breathe on it” issues as the Command Wolf, it’s a far superior kit to it in every way. I can’t say I’d buy it if I didn’t like Zoids, but I’m not into more complicated models for their own sake—if you are and like robot cats and shiny gold, it’s worth a look even if you’re not into Zoids.
A couple of the smaller weapon bits are moved around, because the sticking-out belly gun annoys me on the HMM Sabers, and the shoulder gun’s bottom thingy got in the way of the leg. I also painted the nose
slightly badly, argh metallic paint and touched up all the parts where it came off the frames more successfully with the same paint, but it’s otherwise undetailed.

Needs more orange.
And me to set up a proper place to photograph it.
