Photography Practice

Call me a nerd, but I had to get this Quantum Mechanix Bad Robot Limited Edition Maquette a few months back.  Before Lost and Fringe, I was a huge fan of J.J. Abrams’ Alias (come on – who didn’t want to be Sydney Bristow; side note, I was also a fan of Felicity – even with the short hair).  Even more so, I loved the production company’s logo at the end of each show that then said “Bad Robot!”.  I then heard that one year for Comic Con, there was an edition of 500 limited edition figurines being given away – I would have loved one of those.  Earlier this year, I stumbled upon this figurine – first I saw it on ThinkGeek’s site, and then within a few hours, it disappeared – I think they pulled it off the site! I searched away and found it on Amazon, so naturally, it being a “limited edition” item, I had to get it.  And to add to my nerd status, it comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity (829/1000).

This was also a photography little experiment I was doing with natural lighting.  Photos were taken at about 6PM on a partly cloudy day, the window blinds (windows are to the left of me) are up  and I’m using white paper and my white headboard to light my subject.
